    Sound interesting. I'll wait for some reviews on this. I'll stick to Nod32 for now.

    Good stuff! Hopefully it will work well with no hits on O/S performance and it should since MS should know more about it's own product than anyone else.

    HAVE THE LEAKED VERSION. this was leaked onto the net before Microsoft decided to release the beta.

    Beta is limited to only a few countries, which I think is a bit rubbish.
    Nevermind....if its as bad as the other "Security" software that Micro$oft have released, I dont think I'll bother.

    This tool is pretty cool. I'm doing my first scan right now. I'll post if it finds anything, I currently don't have any other AV so :D
