SUNDAY SMACKDOWN: Microsoft Windows Defender vs. Spybot Search and Destroy
Last week's smackdown was almost a dead heat as Vonage squeaked ahead of Skype with 51.4 percent of the vote. Looks like you value Vonage's call quality and overall service about as much as Skype's cheap international calls. This week, it's all about keeping away spyware, with a bout between Spybot Search and Destroy and Microsoft Windows Defender beta 2. Both are free, and while Defender is still in beta, with its new tools, it may smack down Spybot. Which one will you trust to protect your PC?
