Re: One good thing Microsoft has embraced and extended
I never understood why the big AV companies never took a leaf out of MS's book on AV.
Just release a decent product that does a single job quite well and without all the fuss, complexity and nagging.
MSE isnt perfect but it does the job without any hassle or constant nagging. The only issue is that as its so popular its the main target and its really only a baseline level of defence.
All we want is a lean efficient AV software that just installs, scans and updates in the background. A single notification icon bottom right is all that we need to know its there.
Dont need link scanning, email scanning, network lock downs, child monitoring, arbitrary trusted app levels, convoluted firewall blah blah blah...
