Microsoft's free anti-spyware hits market | CNET News.com

Microsoft's free anti-spyware hits market | CNET News.com

Well, it's official. Microsoft has released Windows Defender 1.1 final. Windows users can now download it for free. Be aware though, to install it, you will need to go through the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) validation process. As some of you may remember, about 2 years ago, Microsoft acquired Giant Software Company for its anti-spyware technology. Using Giant's anti-spyware application as a template, Microsoft started developing their own anti-spyware application. During the development phase, Microsoft released a number of beta versions and refreshes. People already using Windows Defender Beta 2 will not notice any great change in the program. I am looking forward for security experts to test this final version and see how well it does or not.
