But it will have a new name and a subscription fee for updates attached to it. Be afraid, be vary afraid...

If this works out well for them they could carve out a new market.  It's more likely people would buy into a subscription based anti virus software from Microsoft over some of the alternatives.

Did Maximum PC get a copy of the .exe file. I'd like to know what you think of Microsoft's latest attempt at antivirus. This should be good.

Thanks for that link, it still works. I added this beta to my dashboard at the connect site and even recieved my email welcoming me to the beta test. I didn't download it right away because I thought I was safe for a little bit. I now get the same message everyone else gets when they go there. Weird
