FireFox is a high-security-threat spyware program! (http://img208.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img208&image=firefox6ff.jpg)

You know, for a moment there you got me worried...but then I saw the anti-spyware program was made by M$ :D Don't worry, when compared to IE your Firefox is perfectly safe http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Where is the program folder for this? I downloaded the update from MS, but I can't find a shortcut to the program anywhere.

You need to download it separately:

Got it. Tried it. Uninstalled it. Missed a TON of stuff AdAware picked up.

I mean, REALLY! A ton of stuff. Including tracking cookies. Having said that, some of the tracking cookies came from Microsoft web sites, so it's not too surprising.

****!

Also, it's ironic how Microsoft labels its major browser rival as "spyware" - what a crock!

Microsoft Anti-Spyware is actually pretty awesome. I've used it with FireFox for almost 3 months now, never had an issue with the two.

I don't use FireFox much though, only when I need to view certain sites. So probably don't pick up much in the way of Spyware for it.
