Microsoft recognizes that most computer users really don’t pay attention to the company’s warnings about how to keep their PCs safe from spyware, viruses, and other bad stuff. That’s why future software releases will contain dialog boxes, warning messages, and offers to automatically configure security settings.

I know several of you out there will decry Microsoft’s further intrusion into our computing time, but until computer users start acting responsibly on their own, stuff like this is just CYA on Microsoft’s part.
