In any case...
When it expires, there will be announcement from Microsoft (more than
likely) where you can either download an updated MS AS Beta or get the full
version for your system.

Personally - I will still use Spybot Search and Destroy (1.4), Lavasoft
Ad-Aware SE (1.06), SpywareBlaster (3.4) and IE-SpyAd instead. I've seen
the beta MS AS do some things (miss some things) I just don't want/need to
miss.. (My favorite has been rebooting one customer computer to see that
even though I had previously cleaned it and installed MS AS Beta to keep it
that way - the first thing loaded in the taskbar was some malware... then up
came MS AS Beta - happy and ignorant that the Limited user had malware
loading..)

add to our friends comments here...I too feel (n use) a different Ad-ware
such as lawasoft adware or pestpatrol...

Definately need to use more than one scanning tool.

However I was at Teched this past week and was told at the AS booth that MS
will prob make the final release free to individual users.

Hi,
I have been fairly happy with the beta version for home PC's but I would not
consider using it in a corporate environment as it asks the end use if it's
OK or to install the remote Windows Updates I send, until this is corrected I
won't even consider using it in a corporate environment.

MWAS will indeed be free to users of licensed versions of Win2K, WinXP and
WinServer 2003.
