It's important to note that 'beta' means that the software is pre-release
quality, and likely to be quite buggy. Use at your own risk.

I used GIANT Antispyware before Microsoft purchased GIANT...never had any
problems. It's basically the same interface, only the name has changed.

MS does not really make a lot of stuff. Most of the products and services
you have come to know MS for are actually stuff somebody else developed, and
then MS bought and rebranded it. They started with QDOS, and I don't think
they will stop with Giant AntiSpyware.

It is buggy. And it appears designed in. MS was ripped off by giant.

It's got the XP colors (which I've turned off with classic mode),
but it doesn't "feel" like a Microsoft program. Maybe just a
personal thing.

It feels like a MS consumer programer (encarta, Media Player).

I don't like it.
