Windows only: We took a first look at Microsoft Security Essentials, the free antivirus application from Microsoft, back in June, but today Microsoft Security Essentials has left beta and is ready for your PC.
The application hasn’t really changed much since we took our first look from what we can tell, meaning this release is most likely filled with bug fixes and stability improvements rather than new features.
We’ve been impressed with Security Essentials so far, though it may not be enough of an improvement or change that’ll make it worth switching to from your current favorite antivirus application. If you’ve been testing it out since the beta release, or you’ve just played around with it a little this morning, let’s hear what you think of it in the comments.Microsoft Security Essentials [Microsoft]
