The previously mentioned secret alpha test was for the just announced upgrade to the Yahoo! Toolbar which now contains anti-spyware code.
I have to say, this one of those ideas that was immediately obvious upon hearing it. "Of *course* we should use the Toolbar as a way to help poor Windows users get all that crap off their machines." But at the same time it's amazing how many folks never came up with it on their own, me included.
Congrats to the Yahoo! Companion team for this toolbar update. This update has the potential to fix a lot of really messed up computers.
Note to Microsoft: If security is job #1, how come you haven't done this already? Shouldn't Windows
Update have installed a comprehensive anti-spyware solution by now?
