Microsoft Introduces New Anti-Spyware Tool

In its never-ending battle to show the world that it really, really cares about the security of machines running Windows operating systems, Microsoft is now offering its own anti-spyware product called Microsoft AntiSpyware. Now, anything that Microsoft does to help out our beleaguered spyware-ridden machines is a good thing, unless it causes more problems by installing it (read: Service Pack 2 and some of the seucrity patches for Windows XP). However, in this instance, Microsoft AntiSpyware may be the real deal. I saw a positive review that compared it with current free anti-spyware giants Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy. The beta version of the product can be found here. This version is free, and I'm not sure what the cost will eventually be, but they should give it away for free in perpetuity.

    How did I fix the too famous and infamous dup.dll and how did that happen? The dup.dll is another driver of windows XP that seems stop working and hang. Looking closely to this issue, I realized that the problem is not dup.dll but the next one inline. If you remove dup.dll, the computer will hang on the previous.
