    MSAntiSpyware joins the adaware sellout

    MS antispyware is now leaving alone by default many of the mainstream adware and spyware products. This is similar to the stance recently taken by AdAware and also seems to be softening us up for the next stage - apparently MS has bought into some adware company or other, well it's their kind of tactic really anyway so no surprise there.

    I am shamed - it was a weekend though - and now you know, I never read the front page!



    Respect is due to man and man......and rev.

    Actually I had been beginning to notice that MS antispyware is a pain in the butt to use, it's the only anti-spyware app where there isn't a 'select all' option on the results/removal page. I'm sure it used to have that or am I deranged as well as stupid? I have always used Webroot SpySweeper on my own desktop machine which is looking like a good choice at the moment, they certainly have done things the right way to now and they even detect a lot of the dodgy keyloggers.
