    Re: Microsoft anti-spyware

    I think I'll go install it now.

    I've read this is the poop, and Spyware can't seem to get rid of Slotch.

        LOL it already found five or six things that Spybot (as opposed to "Spyware", which just shows it's past my bedtime) didn't, and it's only in minute 2 or a scan that's estimated to take just under 30 minutes....

          Re: Microsoft anti-spyware

          .. and the list continues to grow...

          It has found Slotch. Spybot has tried five times to remove Slotch, including steps taken during reboots. If this MS offering removes it, I'll be pleased.

          It began its work by scanning memory. I don't recall seeing Spybot scan memory.

              Keep in mind this is a beta, and as such may have some unforseen consequences. A few are reporting some false positives.
              FWIW, I'm evaluating it as well...it looks pretty decent for now. I'll be shocked if they don't start charging for it (beta expires and will become unusable after July 31, 2005).

                  I didn't verify my version of windows, I just chose to download without verifying, then installed it with no problem. Keep in mind that when it updates, however, it sends "standard computer information" to MicroSoft, which includes your IP address, your system specs, your OS, etc...

                    Just a note that Microsoft purchased this from a well known company. The product that it was before was excellent. Cant remember the name before, but I heard it on G4TechTV. They recomended it.

                    I installed this lastnight, and it found things here that adaware and spybot didn't... I'm happy with it so far.

                      That's odd... Microsoft leaves these doors open, but will sell a product to close them... Closer and closer to not collecting $200, and going strait to jail. GG Microsoft.

                        Stock car alarms are basically useless: why don't car companies include better ones for free? Besides, Microsoft can't make up for all the ignorant PC users that click Yes to install every piece of softwae they come across.

                          Re: Microsoft anti-spyware

                          Although car companies do provide locks, and other security measures. Microsoft doesn't provide a "Stock" anti-spyware package.

                          What i'm getting at is here is this company that makes billions a year, and they cant supply a simple tool to fix their &(*! ups?

                          I'm sure i'll go back to spybot once the beta is up... it's just the idea dude.

                            No, but there's one built into the operator: it's called "common sense" and it can get you far.

                            You realize that ad-ware removal isn't just some "one-hit-wonder" program that you release and it work 100% all the time. It has to be updated because the people who write these spyware programs keep modifying their code to get around them.

                            Just like you don't expect EA games to pay money monthly for servers for YOU to play on, don't expect MS to go out of their way without charging (like MMO's, they run the servers and you pay them monthly).

                            Refer to above quote by me. I run an ad-ware and virus scan once a week. They come up with nothing except some tracking cookies. I haven't been infected with a virus since the NYB (which was a floppy boot sector virus, so you know how old that is). I run IE 6.0, so based on the average Linux Junkie's view: I should be trojaned 6 ways from Sunday everytime I view a webpage, to bad I'm not.

                            Don't get me wrong, Mozilla is a great browser, but it's not a panacea. As long as there are ignorant PC users out there: I will have a job (no matter what software they run).

                              Some people (Actualy most people) dont understand whats going on in their computer. (I'm not saying you dont) Whether it be because they simply are not technical people, or they have no common sense. I'm just simply stating that "hackers" are taking advantage of exploits in both the browser and operating system. So, I guess it's okay for Microsoft to now leave these doors open, and only have the people that pay more money be secure? Think about that.
