Anti spyware at no charge
Microsoft Corp. chairman Bill Gates said last week that the new anti-spyware tool will be available at no charge to all Windows users. Gates was the keynote speaker at the RSA Security Conference. Gates also announced a new version of Internet Explorer with other security upgrades. In December 2004 Microsoft acquired Giant Company Software and the anti-spyware add-on came from that shop. Microsoft is in the process of acquiring Sybari Software which makes Antigen. Microsoft will eventually roll out its own antivirus software.
