I got generally the same [good] results as Tom...picked up quite a bit more than Spybot, and seemed to deal with it effectively too. For being a Microsoft product and a beta version no less, I'd say that I'm pretty impressed.
Of course, the downloaded versions expire on 7/31/05, and based on their findings of number of participants in SpyNet, my guess is that they'll start charging for it soon thereafter.

Downloaded it already.
I had Ad-aware and Spybot Search & Destroy, it picked up a few things the Ad-aware and Spybot didn't pick up.
The Ad-aware came with a spyware on it and I remember at installation that it said not to remove it otherwise it will stop functioning. Well The Microsoft one did and nothing happened to the Ad-aware.
After some research on the spyware that was found by the microsoft one, the Ad-aware got the boot off my system.
