Here's a little something I ran across.

It seems Microsoft might be trying to take the reins in the Anti-Virus and Firewall departments with the release of Vista.

Scroll down a little and read this article.

MS OneCare halts flow of antivirus info

The way I understand the article is; unless you have Microsoft's Anti-Virus (OneCare), your virus definitions will not be updated properly whether you're using Symantec, McAfee, or any Anti-Virus software.

Same holds true for spyware and adware.
