Microsoft has released Beta 2 of its popular Windows Defender anti-spyware application. Beta 2 offers several new features including:

* A new user interface that makes performing common tasks easier
* An improved warning system so that users do not miss important alerts
* A new scanning engine
* Improved Real Time Protection; the application now monitors key areas of the OS for changes
* 64-bit support

Users of the current beta (Beta 1) will be notified about the upgrade. Otherwise, the beta can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center. BetaNews is also hosting a copy of the x64 version. And if this beta misbehaves (or behaves properly in my opinion), remember this:

This is pre-release (beta) software distributed for feedback and testing purposes. Microsoft only provides best effort support through the newsgroups. If Windows Defender (Beta 2) is causing an issue with your system, we recommend removing it by using Add or Remove Programs and even using System Restore if the problem persists.
