Microsoft Free AntiVirus

Microsoft have started free AV(Antivirus) service. This service is available only to few countries in the world. At the moment China, Brazil, Israel and USA are the only countries where this service is available.
Looks like microsoft are trying to conquer AV market with their free software, we should wait and see the reaction of other AV vendors.

Google spam system was very smart to block them. You can easily spot typo's and quick Google search of the telephone numbers tells you that they are premium numbers used by scammers to make money , so don't get fooled in an ambition to get fake degree.

As i further went through my emails still there were local sexy singles waiting for me, canadian doctor wooing me to buy viagra....oops nastiness of spam ,so stay away from it, don't try to open anything in your bulk/spam folder(or run any attachments) unless you are sure its from legitimate source.
