Microsoft Security Essential



I’ve been using MSE for almost 4 months now. I used to have Microsoft Live One Care and  installed it to 3 of my computers. It is one of the best subscription service that I ever paid. Period. However due to the decision made by Microsoft of discontinue it, I was invited to test “Morro” – a codename for MSE.

Unlike MLOC, MSE only focus on antivirus and malware. I guess Windows 7 comes with a more improve firewall and backup solution that they don’t have to focus much on that features.

Surprisingly, there is no annoying thing about MSE. Yea its going to be free, but I can’t find any problem with it. It works in the background. Light weight as if you don’t have anything running. Sometimes I check it just in case it is running.

As for the updates, so far I don’t encounter any error like what MLOC did. They update it almost everyday to once a week. MSE still in beta though.

But no worries, I got an e-mail by the team saying that they going to release the final version to the public in the coming weeks.
