Two interesting things that I saw:

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
After the download, this tool runs once to check your computer for infection by specific, prevalent malicious software (including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom) and automatically helps remove any variants found. After it runs, the tool is deleted from your computer. A new version of the tool will be offered every month. If you want to manually run the tool on your computer, you can download a copy from the Microsoft Download Center or run an online version from microsoft.com. In addition to using this tool, you should use an up-to-date antivirus product to help protect your computer from other malicious software.

I'm assuming this version works even if you don't verify your computer?

[story.news.yahoo.com...]
Another critical vulnerability could let an attacker take control of a computer by tricking the user into viewing a particular image, perhaps through the company's MSN or Windows Messenger or its Windows Media Player. The flaw takes advantage of imaging technology called "PNG Processing."

Can someone shed some light on that one?

That part is interesting! Expect an update monthly then. Good to see Microsoft are doing this.
