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.

To be totally honest, I don't really like MS, but they did a damn fine job with Windows 7, and as far as them supplying their own antivirus software ...... Well, who better then them, It is in the companies best interest to keep it's operating system secure. It makes them look better and secures it's customer base.

If another company can do better, they will win out (at least on the corporate level) which is where most of these security companies make their money anyway.
