Looks like Microsoft have jumped into the whole Spyware security thing now, offering an early beta release of their new AntiSpyware software for trial. For some of you, the software will be all too familiar, it is in fact the mighty Giant anti-spyware program which actually came out on top within our Spyware and Adware Removal Guide a short while back.


Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) is a security technology that helps protect Windows users from spyware and other potentially unwanted software. Known spyware on your PC can be detected and removed. This helps reduce negative effects caused by spyware, including slow PC performance, annoying pop-up ads, unwanted changes to Internet settings, and unauthorized use of your private information. Continuous protection improves Internet browsing safety by guarding more than 50 ways spyware can enter your PC. The worldwide SpyNet community plays a key role in determining which suspicious programs are classified as spyware. Microsoft researchers quickly develop methods to counteract these threats, and updates are automatically downloaded to your PC so you stay up to date.
