More than half of all Windows crashes reported to Microsoft Corp. are the result of deceptive software, according to Brian Arbogast, corporate vice president of the Identity, Mobile and Partner Services Group for MSN and the Personal Services Division at Microsoft. Spyware is increasingly making computers slower and less stable in addition to intruding on browsing, he said.

What's really awful is how this stuff has apparently existed since Windows 95 and even before most people were connected the the Internet!

No mention of how easy Microsoft makes it for this stuff to get installed, of course..
