Re: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes

MSFT really should have Windows 10 disable malware like Norton, Avast etc.

Isn't that the other way around?

If an anti-virus program REALLY did its job it should uninstall Windows. The only problem is that that would remove a very profitable ecosystem. Can you imagine the howling of anti-virus providers if Microsoft suddenly got security right? Not that I deem them capable of that, but just imagine what would happen - never mind that that industry only existed by the grace of the abysmal coding from Redmond..
