    Hopes on the way but it may cost you some

    Following the takeover of anti-spyware firm Giant, Microsoft said it would soon release a toolkit that strips machines of the irritating programs.

    Although initially free, Microsoft has not ruled out charging people who want to keep this toolkit up to date.

    It was released Thursday. Anyone can go to microsoft.com and download the beta version now.

    I installed it yesterday and first impressions are good.

    Anyone with a Hooky Windows OS should no try though.
    It runs a "Validation" routine and then asks you to copy tye resulting code into a dialogue box. This is optional, but MS hints all is not as rosy if you don't.

    Worked on all PCs but the one with windows 98. I guess it's only good for 2000 or above.

    Too bad, as I know that old PC with Win 98 was LOADED with little goodies LOL.
