    Microsoft debuts security tools



    Microsoft is releasing tools that clean up PCs harbouring viruses and spyware.


    The virus-fighting program will be updated monthly and is a precursor to Microsoft releasing dedicated anti-virus software. Also being released is a software utility that will help users find and remove any spyware on their home computer. Although initially free it is thought that soon Microsoft will be charging users for the anti-spyware tool.

    Paid protection The anti-spyware tool is available now and the anti-virus utility is expected to be available later this month.
