    Since OneCare will be going away, you may want to bookmark the Microsoft Malware Protection Center Portal

    (Or when she thinks she knows what she's talking about. )

    Seriously, regarding InPrivate browsing, for me personally, I don't see a lot of value added. The reason is that I am the sole user of my computer(s), connected at home not in a public location so not concerned about browsing history, TIFS (temporary internet files), passwords,etc. In addition, InPrivate only blocks third party cookies -- which are blocked by Firefox on my computers anyway -- although from the safety menu in IE8 you can customize which third-party content is blocked/allowed.

    Although it was a couple years ago, Ben Edelman was asked by Vinny Lingham and Clicks2Customers to test the current state of cookie detections by major anti-spyware programs. Ben created a suite of cookies and ran tests in a Virtual environment to see which cookies are most affected. He selected the leading anti-spyware programs that detect cookies for the tests. Ben's analysis, Sponsored by Clicks2Customers, is available at "Cookies Detected by Anti-Spyware Programs: The Current Status". I will leave you to read Ben's analysis and draw your own opinions regarding tracking cookies.

    One improvement I do like in IE8 is when deleting browsing history, you can save cookies/TIFs for sites in your Favorites folder.
