Microsoft Spyware now available

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

Since MS aquired Giant Software and their product, it's been repackaged under the MS name.

I think I may do a test. Run MS Spyware for one week without using Adaware or Spybot. Then after that week run both Adaware and Spybot to see if they find anything. My money is gonna be on Adaware and Spybot.
