Microsoft is cooking a free security solution - “Morro” Antivirus for Windows 7, Vista SP2, XP SP3

Microsoft is cooking a free security solution, designed to integrate seamlessly with Windows 7, as well as with Windows Vista RTM/SP1/SP2 and Windows XP SP3. Advertised as a no-cost consumer security offering, code-named “Morro” is set up to be much more than a simple antivirus, also offering protection against spyware, rootkits and Trojan horses, according to the software giant.

Code-named “Morro” is expected to be made available in the second half of 2009, just in time for Windows 7, whose RTM is reportedly planned for mid-2009, and for the second Service Pack for Windows Vista.

The introduction of code-name “Morro” will be synonymous with the death of Windows Live OneCare. Microsoft informed that sales of the Windows Live OneCare subscription service would be discontinued completely, come June 30, 2009.
