Microsoft releases AntiSpyware beta. 2 weeks after they acquired Giant Software. It looks good despite the fact that it didn't find anything suspicious on my box running straight after Adaware. AntiSpyware will be updated "on the second Tuesday of each month as part of Microsoft's monthly software security update process to respond to new viruses, worms and variants". Besides Giant codebase, it contains different Microsoft core virus removal tools against visuses like MyDoom and Blaster worm.
