Yes, really fresh news... I think Windows Defender has been around for quite a few years. And the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool is downloaded every month and checks for spyware/trojans. One only has to make sure that the copy of Windows is genuine.

On the other side, true, one also can use AVG and its "format c:" protection schemes, ;) .
