Microsoft Releases Windows Defender Beta 2

The long awaited beta 2 of Windows Defender, formerly Windows AntiSpyware has now been released.
 
The new versions sports a new user interface similar to what is found in Windows Vista. The UI has been redesigned to make normal tasks easy, a better warning system and to be less intrusive.
 
Real time protection and monitoring has been enhanced to monitor more points of weakness in the Windows operating system.
 
The latest version now supports x64 operating systems and will run on users machines with or without administrator rights, something that was always an issue with Beta 1.
 
Microsoft's Windows Defender is one of if not the best solution against spyware and adware on Windows machines to date.
