    Good step by MS considering that this may also affect Windows one Care

    Its a great effort by Microsoft

    I just hope AVG improves its detection rates....It has very poor detection rates and thats the only reason why i'm not a AVG user... :(

    yea exactly...avg has poor detection rate, i used it for almost a year nd switched over to zone alarm internet suite...which is far better than avg, nd also detects spyware not detected by ad aware....

    the only disadvantage is that it isnt free ....
