Microsoft Security Essentials rated best free antivirus for Windows

Thousands of downloads. Countless positive reviews on software blogs around the Internet. It's been quite a ride so far for Microsoft Security Essentials. In AV Comparative's most recent report on malware removal, MSE was the only free antivirus rated Advanced+. That ranking placed it alongside big names like Norton, Kaspersky, and F-Secure. Security Essentials also beat out technician favorit...

Update Microsoft Security Essentials definitions manually - no Windows Update required

While Microsoft Security Essentials has gotten mostly glowing reviews so far, some users are still hesitant to install it. One thing holding up some users is Windows Update. You can't update your Security Essentials definitions automatically if the Windows Update service is disabled. And while keeping your system fully patched is a necessity, not everyone wants to allow Windows to do it for th...

Microsoft Security Essentials enjoys warm reception in first week

I'm a huge fan of Security Essentials (and Windows 7, and a number of other MS products, but I digress). It's quickly become my recommended free antivirus app of choice and protects all three of the laptops in my house. And I've got plenty of company. The Microsoft Malware Protection Center blog has posted some interesting numbers. After its first week, Security Essentials has already been ins...

Microsoft Security Essentials leaves beta, available for download 9/29/2009

We knew it was coming soon, and now we know when: tomorrow, or - depending on whether you read this post before midnight - today. Yes, Microsoft Security Essentials is set to shed the beta tag and will be available for public download starting September 29, 2009. Many of our readers have been using the successor to Live OneCare since it first appeared as a leaked (and then official) beta build b...

Microsoft Security Essentials tested, passes with flying colors

Regular Download Squad readers already know that I've been testing Microsoft's new Security Essentials since it first appeared in the wild last week and that I've been quite impressed with it so far. Some commenters weren't impressed, however, waving the NOD32 flag even though SE removed threats from my machine that NOD had missed. AV-Test Labs has now put SE through a slightly more grueling tes...

Microsoft Security Essentials public beta now available to download

It leaked last week, but it didn't take long for Microsoft to follow up with a legitimate download for interested testers: the download page for Microsoft Security Essentials (formerly Moro) is now live. You'll need to sign in with your Connect account or register for a new one to gain access to the download - for now. There will no doubt be hundreds of happy seeders sharing the Beta on torrent...

Microsoft Security Essentials (Morro) leaked - here it is in action.

Remember yesterday when I said we all knew a Morro leak was coming? Ba-da-bing! Less than 24 hours later, there's a torrent available on one of the Internet's favorite sites (which shall remain nameless until someone inevitably posts it in the comments). At last, we've got a leaked MS antivirus tool to remove trojans from our leaked Windows 7 builds! The download is tiny. The XP version is just u...

Morro screenshots leak...Here are some more exciting Morro images

I like leaks and exclusive news as much as the next guy, but I'm having a hard time getting worked up about this particular one. It's no secret that Microsoft's follow-up to One Care should be making an official appearance sometime soon, but an anonymous tipster has already provided NeoWin with three screenshots. Three really, really boring screenshots: pre-update, during update, and the green "...

Microsoft to launch free anti-virus app soon

Word on the street has it that Microsoft is preparing to launch a free anti-virus application for Windows. That's not breaking news - we first reported the project back in November 2008, but Reuters is now reporting that a beta version of the software should be available for download "soon." Microsoft has reportedly been testing the product internally, and expects it to compete with similar util...
