Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, this was to be expected: an anti-virus company complaining that Microsoft's Security Essentials - by far the best anti-virus tool for Windows - is anti-competitive. Microsoft recently began offering MSE as an optional download via the optional Microsoft Update service (which is not Windows Update), and Trend Micro (a patent troll) is going into boo-hoo mode over it.

MSE is better than others at getting out of the way, and I have a bit more faith in it as far as dealing with things like Smitfraud....but with all of the good, it still irks me when my system starts freezing, and I look in Taskmanager to se MsMpEng sucking up 99% CPU.

It doesn't happen often, and just about never on my Win7 machine....but my Core2 Duo at work running XP... no good.
