Free security program by Microsoft!!!


Microsoft whose popular Windows software is a frequent target for Internet viruses, is offering a free security program to remove the most dangerous infections from computers.

The program, with monthly updates, is a step toward plans by Microsoft to sell full-blown antivirus software later this year.

U can see the program on its website www.microsoft.com. it now avaliable...i just downloaded it

Advantages:
1.Updated versions will be offered automatically and free each month.

2.Also being offered is a free program to remove "spyware"

3.Since its free and strong enoughwould compete against programs from McAfee, Symantec and others.

4.Offers separate programs to disinfect specific viruses. Microsoft promised its new removal tool will target a variety of infections and will be updated each month to recognize new ones.

Microsoft Says:"We will have a standalone antivirus product that is one of the things you can buy from Microsoft, but we're not announcing anything today," said Rich Kaplan, vice president for Microsoft's security business and technology unit.
    "This is an area we certainly think we can differentiate ourselves from Microsoft," Weafer said. "We've worked hard over the years to build trust with customers."

Recent Work By Microsoft: It has responded by tightening security for its popular Outlook e-mail software and improving the protective firewall utility for Windows.
