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.

They are probably going to argue that if Microsoft Update doesn't find an anti-virus in the system, it should show the user a selection of anti-virus choices. You know, like the browser ballot in EU computers.

Haha that is so probable! I won't be surprised if it does happen.
