Spyware, malware, viruses, and annoyware (our term) are an increasingly prevalent problem these days. Traditionally, Microsoft has relied on the third-party vendor ecosystem to produce products that counteract these inconveniences and threats, but Microsoft has now determined that it’s in its best interest to address the problems itself.
