Vista to eradicate spyware

Joris Evers at is predicting that Vista will eradicate spyware and probably drive anti-spyware vendors virtually out of business. According to analyst Rob Enderle Vista has the best protection compared to earlier Windows.

"Vista, because it was pretty much conceived during the toughest times for Microsoft with regards to malicious software, has the most protection in it compared to any of their platforms,"

Vista will use such innovative features as requiring people to log on as "administrator" to install an application and restricting Internet Explorer to a sandbox. Finally Windows Defender will clean up anything that does make it through.
