perhaps in the auto-update at the summary?

This may sound funny to you, but I try to avoid
the icons in my tray., which indicate auto-startup.

I prefer to run the programs like this one manually,
and the updates will be the same for me... I check
on a routine for all 5-6 of this kinda program myself.

Just means less system resources in use all the time.

I keep one resident anti-virus (AVG) running at start usually.
One resident anti-malware (Spybot TeaTimer) also.

Thats all. :thumbsup:

You are correct Phawgg, but MS Antispyware has realtime protection so having it load at startup may be a desirable thing for those of us that need the extra protection. You know, so when the kids jump on your computer you still have some protection running.

Yes, I do agree with you on the realtime protection, QQQQ
So much is taken into consideration with the MS Anti-spyware Beta 1, too.

As a single user ... with Spybot's resident protection & AVG anti-virus
protection, and the firewall configured & running from startup, I'm OK.

All the "agent coverage" is really very thorough and should be effective.

I hope MS decides to make this program available at no charge, past July 31st,
to offset somewhat the annoyance at incessant updates they require
that winXP users be constantly doing and/or aware of the needs for them. :thumbsup:
