What do you guy's think of this new product called Scan Guard?

Where did you get the idea that this software was from Microsoft? Hint: It isn't.

I've never used this software but it's probably no better than any of the other free anti-virus programs out there. It's probably better than some, worse then others.

Well I got the impression from their quote:

[QUOTE] Experts are now calling it “The Scanguard System.”

An elite team of Certified Microsoft Developers believe they have the perfect solution that can keep your PC running as good as new for years to come.

Anyways I am going to try it out on a VM, and see if it's good.

That's hilarious. There's a HUGE difference between being a "Certified Microsoft Developer" and being a developer that works for Microsoft.

Anyone can get MS certification, it does not mean you are an employee of MS or are authorized to act as an agent representing MS.
