"May be they should ask Intel to make a set of instructions for security applications and make it available to all Security software vendors." It happened :) http://www.financenews.co.uk/investments/intel-extends-olive-branch-to-eu-in-a-bid-to-secure-mcafee/

If watever EU thinks is reality, lets look at positive side of it....what if hardware and software companies join hand and come up with solution which are optimal in nature to the end user.

There is nothing EU does that block. No useful company has been born in the EU in the last decade, unless you count skype

Valid Concern. Its absolutely possible for Intel to add instruction sets to its CPUs which could speed up execution or scanning speeds. But considering the current state of most security bloatware,this kinda solution is definitely good for consumers. May be they should ask Intel to make a set of instructions for security applications and make it available to all Security software vendors.
