Microsoft deletes IE from many computers!

[23:05] <jc> Many Microsoft Windows users who downloaded the recently released AntiSpyware program from Microsoft, or had it installed through an automatic Windows update, woke up to a surprise. Unintentionally, the heuristics of the software detected Internet Explorer as spyware, and removed the program from their systems.
[23:06] <jc> <3 BBspot.
[23:07] <opal> wha?
[23:08] <burr86> HGAHAHAHAHA
[23:12] <jc> A representative from Lavasoft, which sells Ad-Aware another spyware removal program, complained that Microsoft was using its monopoly and knowledge of the operating system to "offer features that others can't match."
[23:12] <jc> "Tough shit," said Weatherbee.
[23:12] <jc> Many computer users did not view this new "feature" positively. "I tried to check the weather this morning and all my little blue 'e' icons were missing. I couldn't get to the Internet at all. I guess I'll have to get a new computer," said Windows XP user Graham Newton.
