Microsoft Antispyware BetaYesterday we told you about how opening Internet Explorer for just a few minutes opened one of us up to spyware. Of course, running programs like Ad-Aware and Spybot - Search and Destroy do a great job at eliminating a lot of what you can bring into your PC. However, did you know that there is now an even better solution currently being offered by Microsoft? Before you start laughing uncontrollably, read on. Anti spyware software maker Giant was recently purchased by Microsoft.  They simply took the software and rebranded it as Microsoft Antispyware Beta. Don’t let the name fool you, it is still the Giant software, it is better than Ad-Aware and Spybot, and it is free. Want it? Simply click here.

I just downloaded it and gave it a shot. Its not a bad system, and should work pretty well for the general public. A full scan took about as long as the other programs I have used, and it appears to be pretty thorough. The program is well designed and extremely easy to use. I give the program a thumbs up, its pretty solid. I won’t be deleting my other adware programs, but this will be another addition to my protection. Never hurts to have too much protection.

This program seems to be very powerful. It was able to detect alot of stuff the other programs did not. Easy to use interface and very thourough. We’ll see if it actually did remove all of it.

Yep, I gave this program a shot and was suprised to see some detections that my other programs didn’t pick up. In fact, it picked up over 400 infected files that my other programs didn’t (spybot and ad-aware). Good going Microsoft and Giant.
