Microsoft Now Decides to Accept Outside Security for Vista


Microsoft Corp. did an about face yesterday, agreeing to make it easier for customers of its forthcoming Vista operating system to use outside security vendors, such as those who make popular antivirus and anti spyware programs.

Until now, Microsoft had planned to block those companies from installing their products in the deepest levels of the new operating system, which is scheduled for release early next year.

The company said it was doing so to address the concerns of security and performance in Windows XP and apply them to Windows Vista. Microsoft Now Decides to Accept Outside Security for Vista - washingtonpost.com
