It looks like Microsoft decided to enter the Anti-Virus detection and removal software sector.
Continuing its recent spate of security moves, Microsoft Corp. on Thursday said it plans to release a virus detection and removal tool on Jan. 11. The
antivirus fighter will be updated on the second Tuesday of every month as part of the company's scheduled software patching cycle.
Let me guess...the software will be on a 3.5" floppy with your basic MSDOS files, especially the one named FDISK.EXE. Add a couple of switches
(like /y) and you're on a good start. Only that way will your virus be removed.
Honestly, I would not install AV software created by MSFT on my dedicated PC. I have 2 other test PCs that I would run them on, but not while on my
internal network. I'll just stick to NOD32.
