Ahh there we go..nothing like a bit of MS Bashing to get the blood pumping. ; )

It's a conspiracy..big brother is watching...look out. They have your info.

It stands to reason that since they wrote the OS that they should be security conscious enough to protect it. The only way they know if their malware product is working and to keep it updated, especially with all of the different versions of malware out there is by receiving feedback. Get a grip. It is like the people at your work that think you have nothing better to do than to read their email all day. BOFH excluded.

    Malicious Software removal tool

    Microsoft has released an interesting report on some results from
    their Malicious Software Removal tool. There are some pretty
    shocking results of the amount of virii this thing has cleaned.
    For example 4.4 million removals of Win32/Rbot, another
    interesting statistic..the tool cleaned one computer that had over
    251 variants of malware. I can only imagine what that person was
    doing on the web. : )

    Article about it here:
