  • Agreement will led to changes in next Windows 10 update

Microsoft Corp. and Kaspersky Lab have settled a dispute that led to antitrust complaints in Europe and an investigation in Russia. As part of the agreement, Microsoft will make changes to the next update of Windows this fall.

The settlement comes two months after Kaspersky, a maker of antivirus software, complained to European antitrust regulators that Microsoft was favoring its own security software in the Windows computer operating system, disadvantaging other providers.
