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.

Nah, its gonna remain free. Yea, the public beta expires on 7/31, I dont think our private beta does that soon.

I don't like getting my anti-spyware from the same company that made my OS so vulnerable.

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.

I'm impressed with it.
