Microsoft MVP 2012–Consumer Security


Dear Stephen Boots,
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2012 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Consumer Security technical communities during the past year.

I’m honored to have been recognized by Microsoft once again for my contributions. My first award was on October 1, 2004 in the MSN category. Two years later my award category was changed to Windows Live since many of the projects under MSN moved to the Windows Live branding. Windows Live products and services still exist, but the brand is being deprecated as Microsoft moves to Windows 8. Those MVPs that were active in the Windows Live category are being transitioned to new categories if they are re-awarded. My activity a few years back was mostly concentrated on Windows Live OneCare, which was the paid subscription antivirus program that included many other features. When that service was transitioned to the free Microsoft Security Essentials in 2009 I was a moderator for it as OneCare was ending. I’ve continued as an active moderator on Microsoft Answers for Microsoft Security Essentials since then. Earlier this year the top level category on Answers was renamed as Virus & Malware to incorporate community support for the Microsoft Safety Scanner, Windows Defender Offline, and Windows Defender.

See you in the forums!
