Spyware Protection in Vista

The latest build of Windows Vista contains quite a few changes to the Security Center. It now contains five categories instead of the three now in XP

The Security Center now checks "Firewall," "Automatic Updating," "Virus Protection," "Spyware Protection," and "General Security."

The addition of spyware protection, we're told, is the core Windows AntiSpyware product and is sure to raise the obvious questions about unfair competition.
