[QUOTE=SeÃ¡n;2556803]I don’t believe this as being unfair competition, especially since Microsoft’s Security Essentials is only shown as an optional update if no Antivirus is installed.
For example, try finding a new PC [U]without[/U] any Antivirus package pre-installed.
Unless the PC is sold without an OS or an alternative to Windows, it will come with Symantec, McAfee or some other AV package installed which forces the user to uninstall it if they would rather use a different Antivirus package.
So far I have never seen a computer sold with a free Antivirus package preinstalled, at least not from a large PC supplier such as Dell, HP, PC World, etc.[/QUOTE]
I agree with the above.
Actually know of @ least 1 trader who charges for “free” antivirus.
Must be really hard to install.
