Windows Live Safety Center

Hi ALL,

This has been mentioned before on this Forum but it's a pretty cool BETA tool from Microsoft & although BETA I think is worth looking into (Windows Defender is also beta), I think MS is TRYING to help the consumer with all these tools!

It's an Online Scan http://safety.live.com/site/en-US/default.htm

Hope that helps someone,
Steve
