South Korea’s antitrust watchdog said Wednesday it won’t drop its investigation into allegations Microsoft Corp. engaged in unfair trade practices even if the U.S. software giant reaches an accord with the South Korean company that first brought the complaint.

Daum Communications Corp., a South Korean Internet portal, filed a complaint to the country’s Fair Trade Commission in 2001 alleging that Microsoft violated trade rules by tying its instant messenger software to Windows.

The Seoul Economic Daily said Wednesday that Microsoft and Daum Communications are trying to work out a settlement and that industry expectations for one are high.
