According to Computerworld, Microsoft is planning on shipping an antispyware program before the end of the month. What this means is it’ll probably just be a rebranding of whatever Giant was planning on shipping before. I’m hoping it’s really user friendly – I’ve installed Adware and Spybot on several relatives computers, but it’s largely just a convience as I’m the only one that ever runs them. It’s about time someone stepped into this space. It’s not clear if the final version will be free or not, but at least the "evaluation version" is going to be free.
