Are you ready for Microsoft’s Power-hungry Virus Morro-tician?

Rootkits, spyware, trojans and viruses are the common online hazards that we have to deal everyday every time we’re hooked up to the internet to pop in on our favorite social networking sites with the likes of Myspace, Facebook, Faceparty and Orkut sites.

Not only that, we could get viruses too whenever we do file sharing among our unsuspicious workmates at the office. We get these viruses because we’re not aware that some apps and other documents coming from Tom, Dick, Harry and Jane that were passed on to us were infected too.

So, this is the sole purpose why the software-giant Microsoft Corporation plans to introduce an on the house anti-malware to protect your system against those previously mentioned online and offline threats.

Microsoft Corporation called its anti-malware product as the Morro. If truth be told, since it’s a free anti-malware we don’t know yet the real score as of the press time how this product fares against the tested free anti-virus in the market such as the AVG Anti-Virus, Avast and Avira Antivir.

On top of that, we don’t have any idea too how effective and efficient the Morro in keeping up its promises to beat back the online threats that continuously badgering us for a long time. Lastly, we’ll just stick around to make an acid test of the real McCoy anytime on the second half of next year 2009,the official date of release of the Morro .
