    Hi folks,

    I need your advice on what to do next with my MSAS Beta 1.

    I have been using it for a while now and I like it very much but my MSAS Beta 1 will expire on 31 July 2005.

    I intend to use it again but how can I get a version that does not expire? I think MS is giving it out for free ... ?

    The last time I checked the net for information related to this I did not find any ... :oops:

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Chew

    Microsoft have stated that MSAS will be free to all owners of genuine Windows installations when it's released, and they have also said that there will be a new version released before the end of July.

    So keep on enjoying it and look forward to many more years of troublefree computing, courtesy of Microsoft... :)

    Thanks for the info. That's good news for me at least. Free!

    I don't think mine will go any faster as I have only 512mb ram max on my Dell. That's the max limit on my hardware.

    Don't know about CounterSpy but I will test it out on my future PC.

    :)

    just go to the Microsoft website that you download antispyware as they have a newer engine for download, and so the old engines support is expiring on 31 july.
