Windows There's a software product coming that has the potential to demote spyware from a security priority to an afterthought: Windows Vista. Spyware has become a serious security problem for users of Microsoft's operating system over the past years, giving rise to a host of third-party tools to fight the insidious software. But perhaps the best defensive program has yet to ship, some analysts believe.

We have been hearing this kind of rhetoric for years. The fact is Microsoft's has an abysmal record when it comes to security with its Windows platform. Ever since Windows 2000 and 'trusted computing' security issues with Windows have, if anything, become worse. Now why should Vista be any different? Because of changes in user privileges?
Sorry, Windows is a great platform for games and multimedia but it is not a secure platform, in any flavor. Many industry experts have claimed it, many incidents have proved it.
