Symantec brings Microsoft complaint to EU

Security software vendor Symantec Corp. has complained to European Commission antitrust regulators about Microsoft Corp.'s entrance into the security business, setting the stage for a possible antitrust case against the software company. The news comes on the day Microsoft announced plans to begin offering business users an integrated antivirus and antispyware product called Microsoft Client Protection (see "Microsoft to combine virus, spyware protection"). A beta version of this product is expected to be released by year's end.

At issue in the complaint is Microsoft's plan to bundle its security software with Windows Vista, the next major version of the Windows operating system due next year.
