    In Windows Vista there is a Built in Anti-Malaware

    look here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/security.mspx

    it says this

    Protection from Malware

    IT departments and individual users spend significant time and resources solving problems caused by malware as well as trying to detect and prevent problems before they happen. Windows Vista includes powerful features that can prevent, detect, and remove malware before it causes problems. The result: improved computer performance, fewer support calls, and improved security.

    Note that the built-in anti-malware detection, cleaning, and real-time blocking are primarily targeted at individual users. Windows Vista does not include enterprise management for anti-malware via group policy beyond enabling or disabling the protection.


    now i was thinking in the future when ppl buy windows vista i wonder if ppl would want other antmalaware like other antspyware and antitrojan i wonder if u would have the option to uninstall this built in antimalaware as most probably the realtime protection wont be as good as the companies like kaspersky, lavasoft, ewido etc... have

    Microsoft has provided anti-virus tools in the past. They first introduced MSAV with DOS 6.2. It did not mean that you could not use a third party scanner. I am certain that that is the case with Vista.
