Built-in antivirus in Windows 8

22 Nov

According to ZDNet and IT world Microsoft announced that they will build parts of Security Essentials antivirus into Windows 8.

I think Security Essentials is a fine product and use it as protection for all of my Windows 7 computers – this is an active choice I have performed. I understand that many end-users will benefit of free built-in anti-virus protection. Personally I would prefer a pick-and-choose strategy letting the user select their preferred anti-virus provider as part of the Windows installation process.
