Microsoft Anti-malware company Symantec has accused Microsoft of withholding key information about its upcoming Vista OS, in an attempt to gain an unfair advantage in the security market. Symantec claimed this week that Microsoft is refusing to hand over the APIs for Windows Defender, its anti-spyware product which will be included in Vista. Without the APIs, Symantec claims that it isn't able to ensure that its own security products are compatible with Vista. Microsoft, though, insisted on Wednesday afternoon that the APIs are now available.

Microsoft should ban Symantec

Norton anti virus and internet security is the chief reason behind why computers running windows are slow. They can actually slow the computer down more than spyware and viruses.

I think Microsoft should not allow Symantec to even release a product for windows vista. Their reputation is being ruined by them.
