Microsoft Antispyware (Beta)

  Cannuck 23:52 17 Mar 2005

Downloaded Microsoft Beta version of their new Antispyware program. I have ran it 3 times in the last couple of days, and it always tells me my computer is "clean"

Ran Ad-Aware SE immediately after each run of MS program, and guess what, it found 7 critical items the first time, and 13 the second time, and 9 the third time.

I think it's back to the drawing board Billy Boy, if the great Microsoft can't find spyware that free programs can.

Has anyone else noticed this MS Antispyware

Adaware produces many 'false positives'.

What did Adaware find...cookies by any chance?

Went to bed early, so didn't see your response till this morning. Yes, it was cookies that Adaware picked up.
