Defending your mistakes

Microsoft is calling its anti-spyware product Windows Defender from here on out.

According to the Microsoft techie, “Making the engineering change from “Windows AntiSpyware” to “Windows Defender” took a lot of careful coordination across our team to ensure that the strings in the UI got changed, the help files all got updated, registry keys, file names and properties, as well as a couple of images all got changed.”

After all that careful engineering to change the name (images, text strings, etc.), I just have to ask…


Frankly, If I had created such a worldwide security mess though my ineptitude, I’d be trying to defend myself too. And using descriptions of all the frivolous efforts, just like Microsoft has.
