Well this is my first blog post for the new year. I had a good break over the Christmas New Year period and tried to stay away from technology but found it hard to do so.
A colleague of mine in Redmond pointed me to this little bit of Anti-Spy-ware that Microsoft has acquired from Giant software. I’ve installed it on a couple of machines at home and its found some interesting bits of spy-ware.
This is cool that we are getting into this so have a look if you get a chance. It’s in Beta 1 right now so the usual warnings apply. Please see below for a bit of blurb!
As you might have already heard, Microsoft recently acquired Giant Software, Inc., the maker of a highly respected anti-spy-ware tool. Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) helps protect Microsoft Windows PCs, and allows you to detect and remove spy-ware and other potentially unwanted software. Beta 1 of this tool is now available for download at http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx
Check it out if you get a moment! After all its free!
I’m also in the process of rebuilding my home PC and turning it into a Windows Media Centre 2005 box. Once I’m done with this little project I’ll post the details!
Have a great 2005 folks!
