But has Microsoft taken effective steps to stop software manufacturers
like SystemSecure or UltimateCleaner from using Microsoft's
proprietary features like Windows System Alert Box to publicize their
products, blatantly giving a false impression that their products have
been recommended by Microsoft and in the process, infecting user
systems with worms?
How the OS is used is up to you and what you allow. If you don't want to
allow apps/vendors/people to use features of the OS that are exposed for
use, then it's up to you, not Microsoft, to limit their access to YOUR
COMPUTER.

But this does not apply to ms, right?

And what does that have to do with malware getting on machines?


"If you don't want to allow apps/vendors/people to use features of the

Somehow, it evidently is NOT up to the user to limit access to one's
computer when ms is the one doing the accessing. It makes no difference
if it is malware OR ms doing the accessing. It is not right for anyone
to access by deceit or without permission. It may happen, but it is not
right.

Hm, lets see, you can control access to the internet by the OS, you just
don't appear to know how - even updates that you agreed to and didn't
know it, they can be blocked from working.

But, your FUD has nothing to do with this thread - it's about malware,
not about MS Updates.
