    Microsoft's AntiVirus Quiz

    This comes in two flavours, Basic, leading to Advanced. Six and five questions respectively.

    Microsoft gives an answer to the recent thread question on "<!post=Hardware/Software Firewalls,514,830>Hardware/Software Firewalls<!/post>-- should you use a software firewall if you already have a hardware firewall?" in Question 1 of the Advanced quiz!

    Re: Microsoft's AntiVirus Quiz

    The only question I missed was intentional, since I am not wed to their malicious removal tool (or whatever it's called) and so selected a "firewall and antivirus software" answer, which they disputed. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> I did seem to detect a very slight Microsoft bias in those questions .... <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    I rather like the idea of a Malicious Removal Tool!

    But it's their Malicious Software Removal Tool which of course runs only in IE, because it is/needs an ActiveX control to be installed!

    You can download it directly from Download details: Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool without an ActiveX involvement.

    -------------------------------------------
    I did seem to detect a very slight Microsoft bias in those questions ....
    -------------------------------------------

    I detected just a little MORE MS bias in there.

    Got them all correct but also got a laugh when they asked if the quiz was helpful or not. When I clicked "No", I got an error message saying they were having technical difficulties, please try later. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> I clicked No too and got a dialog that allowed me to tell them why. I believe I selected "not what I was looking for". <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
