    "Because Microsoft believes that the user should be in control, we have put controls in XP Service Pack 2 such as pop-up blockers and a firewall that alerts the user if an application is trying send information. This should help combat spyware."

    I just wonder how good these so-called controls (pop up blocker & firewall) will be. Will they be giving companies like Zonelabs a run for their money? Or are we talking just mediocre products.

    Microsoft has to walk a thin line. I think any protection they can offer will be better than the offerings they have now.

    It should be interesting.
