The Microsoft Antispyware program was developed by Giant and,you guessed it Sunbelt (Counterspy
).Microsoft bought out Giant (the original of which I have on my pc) and are developing it......they are supplying definition updates to Counterspy at the moment and it's also why they look so similar.In future the two products will become entirely seperate entities so that may change.

The common heritage is the reason that both are well thought of......I bought my subscription for the Giant version after reading reviews and trying it.I thought it was well worth the apparently did Microsoft,lol.
