Good news for all microsoft lovers...
Competing with the products sold by the avast, symantec, Kaspersky, the world's biggest software maker- Microsoft is going to launch its FREE Antivirus- "MORRO"..!!
Currently, Microsoft is testing the product with their employees. When the test completes, Microsoft plans to make a trail version of tht product & will be available for the general public from its site.
Morro is being introduced into the market after Microsoft’s commercial flop – Live OneCare 3 years ago. Microsoft had announced in November that it plans to burry that product suite and is gearing up to make a come back with the free Morro service by the end of 2009. We are still unsure about its exact launch date.

Windows Live OneCare will continue to be sold for Windows XP and Windows Vista at retail through June 30, 2009. Direct sales of OneCare will be gradually phased out when “Morro” becomes available.
According to Microsoft, Morro will offer basic features like fighting wide range malicious software including viruses, spyware, rootkits and trojans, making it comparable to low-end consumer products already existing in the market.
“Morro” will be available as a stand-alone download and offer malware protection for

    * Windows XP
    * Windows Vista
    * Windows 7 operating systems.
It sure will be very interesting to see how the features of Morro would compare against products from its competitors. Let’s wait and see!
