In the Security Forum. Anything I'd write would be a duplicate of that forum discussion so I'm just noting that you may want to read that one.

for others, but you and me must live very clean lives on the net that I heavily travel. I have had the MS AntiVirus Beta program downloaded a day after it was released. I run AdAware and Spybot 1st and they seem to get it all leaving nothing for MS. Gonna switch and do it 1st for a change. Wink

Mod Proffitt is right, this should be discussed in the Virus & Security Alerts Forum, but I just had to let you know here since you posted & asked.
