      This paper describes the technologies that Microsoft uses to combat malware. A core technology is the antimalware engine, a component that works with many Microsoft products and services. The antimalware engine scans client computers for signs of malware at every possible level of infection, from the browser or application level down to system files. These technologies form part of a larger Microsoft antimalware effort that includes uniform deployment of updates and innovative technology that helps prevent exploitation of software vulnerabilities. These technologies are supported by the efforts of the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC), which constantly accrues and analyzes global data to help protect Microsoft customers.
