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.

This is actually more like unfair competition and price dumping, MS is more or less dumping a new product into an existing market and using profits from other products to cover their losses.

MSE is not a new product, it has existed already for quite some time. So none of this applies.
