Microsoft Antispyware has now been directly attacked by a Virus. Even though its still in the beta stages.

This virus attacks bankers mostly. Its purpose is to disable Microsoft Antispyware, to allow for spyware to be installed.

well lol if these fools (hackers not MS) spent more time on a real life then we would all be happier, all this does is mess up the MS user not MS themselves as they will still make plenty of money


Thinking about it.

After the faulty products they have put out, I'm sure there are many who do.

My advice is to buy everything else than MS. You can get freeware which works very good :)

Not as good as Windows as everything is designed for Windows but Linux does well in being able to play the large majority of Win32 applications.

I would disagree with;

"Linux does well in being able to play the large majority of Win32 applications."

The only way linux distos can use Win32 apps is by emulateing them which means performance will be quite severly affected. While i do rember reading an article about a new version of.. hmm.. mabey WINE which could run Windows apps with no decernable performace issues (Due the the fact it is a 'compatibility layer' rather than a emulator.) it still has compatability/stability issues, especially with Direct3D, as reverse engineering is a tricky business. If im not mistaken the highest level of DirectX (WineX) available to linux is 8. That said it still does not mean all directX8 apps woudl run. Oh and if you have an ATI card your pretty screwed as ATIs Linux driver support is abysmal. Nvidia have a decent set of Linux drivers though. Oh yea the topic: I dont care as i dont use MS AntiSpyware. But i wonder if it picks up Alexa(sp) when you first install it. :lol:
