Microsoft jumps into anti-spyware fray

A few months back, Microsoft bought an anti-spyware company. It has now re-issued that software under a Microsoft name, without changing much else. The beta of this software is available for free.

I just did a scan of my own workstation, and the software reported that there was no spyware on my computer. I then rescanned with my old favorite SpyBot Search and Destroy, and…yup…15 problems were detected.
