Microsoft today unveiled Windows Defender, an improved and updated beta version of its all-in-on spyware destroyer. Praised for its no-fuss design and simple, straightforward protection, the beta two release claims improved detection and removal. Indeed, the screenshots certainly show promise yet there are problems if you choose to opt in. Despite presenting itself as the perfect answer for those still in the dark over PC security, Windows Defender will gladly disable any spyware or adware protection you have conscientiously installed on your computer. This is certainly not the end of the world but somewhat annoying when you’ve just shelled out hundreds for the latest Norton Anti-virus package. We say wait till it’s out of beta but for those who just can’t, you can get it here.
