Refresh build of Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware beta


Microsoft’s antispyware team made version 1.0.509 available for download a couple of hours ago. You can use Help > About to see what you’re currently running, but unless you’re another Microsoftie with the latest internal bits, you probably don’t have this one yet :-)


The only time I notice I’m running it is when it warns me about the latest piece of facehuggerware trying to install some autorun entry. Ahhh, Apple Quicktime, what would we do without you?


Anyway, two thumbs up. Get it while it’s hot:

    I ask myself the same thing about Windows Messenger… 😉

    In Apple’s QuickTime player, go Edit > Preferences > QuickTime Preferences.

    Select "Browser Plug-in" from the drop-down list.

    Untick QuickTime system tray icon.

    Presto, no more qttask.exe autorun.

  4. Damien – Thanks for the tip to get rid of qttask! I hadn’t thought of looking under "Browser PlugIn"

    Anyone got a change-log for this version?

    I prefer using QuickTime Alternative – http://www.free-codecs.com/download/QuickTime_Alternative.htm – so I don’t have to worry about qttask and the like. :)
