Microsoft antivirus fails tests
Is anyone surprised?

Microsoft's Live OneCare security software has failed tests which check how well it spots and stops malicious programs designed to attack Windows.

OneCare was the only failure among 17 anti-virus programs tested by the AV Comparatives organisation.

That's probably why I recommend NOD32.

I can under$tand why Micro$oft might want to $ell/provide anti-viru$ $oftware, but IMHO I think they should focus on their core products and do their best on them, not try to do everything. Personally I have more trust in other anti-virus products. I get a free copy of Symantec anti-virus through work, so I use that. Yeah, I know it isn't perfect either.
