Default Install of Microsofts Antispyware gives you this on a tool tip of the icon that is placed on the desktop.

It cheered me up and no doubt MS know by now.

What does the validate thing mean and do you need to install the activex controll?

  powerless 11:49 09 Jan 2005

You mean when you download the file?

It's a way validating your copy of Windows is legal. The ActiveX is the validator...

You don't have to be validated and you can downlaod the file easily.

No problem with conflicts, I also run Spybot, Spywareblaster, Adaware, and Ccleaner

Just one thing I have had a bit of a conflict with Spywareguard regarding Start pages, and I have had to tell MS Antispyware to "Always ignore" my home page tiscali. It showed it as a possible threat. Anyone else with a similar problem.

rawprawn - Same with me. As I do not have Internet explorer as default page, it asks my permission to either accept it or change it.

  rawprawn 12:34 09 Jan 2005

You can change it's default by going into Advanced Tools / Browser Hijack you can then change various settings, but there are a number of them and I found it a bit complicated but got what I wanted in the end.
