Microsoft said on Monday that it expects rival Google to file a complaint with a federal judge arguing that changes Microsoft has agreed to make to its Windows Vista operating system fall short of addressing concerns that its computer search function puts Google and other potential competitors at a disadvantage.

A spokesman for Microsoft told Reuters that lawyers representing Google had indicated that a complaint would be filed shortly before U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, the judge overseeing Microsoft's 2002 antitrust consent decree.
