1) Microsoft didnt make it
2) There are better 3rd party ones, that have spent years of gaining trust, from the public. Like Ad-Aware & spy-bot search and destroy.

correct microsoft didn't make it. they bought GIANT Software. Prior to MS they liscened thier software to several other companies including Sunbelt.

It does work well. although you have to pay attention to the various default actions, for example claria is set to ignore. The active protection works pretty well.

They just release an update. seems a bit buggy. I have had to remove and reinstall it on one or two systems.

well, whether microsoft made it or not, i still think it is a great program (you mentioned bugs, well that is why it is called a beta :tazz: but i think the final release will be cool! it has cleaned my computer great, found many things that ad-aware did not, deleted everything that i selected (Unlike ad-aware) and has great protection (unlike ad-aware) don't get me wrong i like ad-aware i have always used it but now it has gone straight into the bin ;)

Claria is set to ignored to the new version of MSAS 'cause Microsoft is going to buy Claria anyway.
I don't use it because it's beta - I don't use it because Microsoft develops it - I don't use it because it has some problems with removal. (Such as removal of New.net)
I simply don't trust it.

Ad-aware/SpyBot/Antivirus/firewall/SpywareBlaster keeps me going.
