The European Commission, fresh from a major court victory over Microsoft (MSFT.O: Quote, Profile, Research), launched new antitrust investigations into the software giant on Monday on suspicion it abused its market dominance to favour its Web browser and Office product.

The European Union executive said it would look into complaints from rivals that Microsoft unfairly tied its Web browser to the Windows operating system and made it harder for software rivalling Office and Outlook to work with Windows.

"This initiation of proceedings does not imply that the Commission has proof of an infringement. It only signifies that the Commission will further investigate the case as a matter of priority," the Commission said.
