    i know that Microsoft is doing something for firewall protection they make a standard one.

    And for antispyware they have a scanner.

    No, but they do detect a few trojan's and some trojandownloaders as well, but you can't use it as a primary trojan detector/remover, it simply hasn't got enough signatures for this type of malware. Spyware/adware is their primary target.

    You never know. There are plenty of very good programs for trojans out there.

    You would have thought Microsoft would know better than anyone the security holes to plug - then again, maybe not :D

    Methinks unless it gets to be a widespread threat.
