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.

I fail to see where Windows 7 is any better than other versions of Microsoft's defective spyware...

Seems the update process still knocks systems down, and the update processor is taken down by Microsoft so the users that updated are stuck with 'screwed' systems...

and the 'Black Hat' crackers and hackers are still adequately cracking and hacking the various versions of the OS and other software supplied...

Keeping up with security in Microsoft, is still a trial and error set up.

Denigrating companies trying to make it easier and safer than Microsoft does is not the way to go.

I note, you don't denigrate Microsoft for the trencherman's plate of inadequately secure and developed software.
