Morro, the new free anti-virus software from Microsoft

How can Microsoft be like Apple?  It can level the playing field by offering free anti-virus software to Windows users.  Most people think Macs don’t get viruses.  So, if Windows users don’t have to worry about viruses by having free anti-virus software, then the virus issue wouldn’t be an issue at all.

Morro will soon be released by Microsoft as a free anti-virus software.  It will not be bundled into the Windows software so that will allow third-party software, such as Norton and McAfee, to still make their money on security software.  Microsoft’s Live One Care did not do a good job as security software.  Why?  It was slow and weighed down the computer’s resources.  We have found many of our clients having computer problems due to the Live One Care taking over.  So, Morro will improve upon this by being a slimmed down software that doesn’t take a lot of processing power.

No actual release date has been mentioned.  But, the Microsoft team is currently testing the beta version and should have more info soon.  We think having Microsoft create its own anti-virus software is a great combination.  After all, now Microsoft will take responsibility in securing its own vulnerabilities.  And maybe, there will be less Windows updates to run after if Microsoft can update its anti-virus software efficiently.
