Bill Gates surprised analysts yesterday during his keynote address at the RSA
Conference 2005 security show in San Francisco when he announced that
his company would offer its Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware product to
consumers for free and issue a major new version of Microsoft
Internet Explorer (IE) for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) users
later this year.
Alright! The only gotcha is that you must be on Windows XP Service Pack 2. You should probably get SP2 via Windows Update. Frankly, I've installed SP2 on over 40 computers, and I've only had a problem once, and that was on a computer infected by both viruses and spyware, which Microsoft recommends you address first.
