    This is getting really silly now and it's not at all funny. What are MS playing at? Their software quality control appears to be non-existent. They keep on pushing out updates that break lots of things and they keep saying sorry. At what point does "sorry" stop cutting the mustard? If they were actually sorry they would put controls in place to reduce occurrences but instead the problem is getting worse as time goes by.

    It's easier to fix a slow PC than being sued by thousands because of a hole in your OS.

    It's not MS fault, AV software performs deep hooks into the system, AV vendors didn't bother to respond quickly enough in updating it, MS informs partner companies about series threats.

    A lot of AV software is just outright bad doing more harm than good.

    I haven't seen any problem whatsoever here, using ESET.

    This comment is the height of ignorance. Those hooks are to prevent exploits and other malicious holes in Microsoft and Hardware security. You really think that something as complex as the AVs of today can be modified and updated in a couple of weeks, jesus H.

    Microsoft is very reputable over the last 18 months on releasing to market updates that haven't been tested properly just generally and with its partners. Two major updates were pulled because of this carp.
