Microsoft Security Essentials – Updated

October 17, 2009

Just downloaded the above and applied it to a Windows 7 install under VMWare; small footprint, simple interface and did I mention its free?

Yes, it is limited to purely malware detection and removal but for home users who do not currently have a solution in place or one that is for one reason or another not being kept up to date, worth considering.

For another opinion check out PC PRO’s Darien Graham Smith’s – Can Microsoft Security Essentials beat Norton?

UPDATE: Microsoft Malware Protection Centre’s results for the first week of Security Essentials being available.
