Free Download: Microsoft Security Essentials


Perhaps one of the most common requests I get from family and friends is for advice on what security software they should add to their PC – this is after many of them have become frustrated with the trial versions that come with their PC. Well today I can offer them a solution from the Microsoft stable – Microsoft Security Essentials.

I’ve been using it for a while on my home PC and I’m pretty happy with it. Easy to setup, non intrusive and doesn’t hammer the CPU like previous programs.

    And that’s all that people ever asked for, thank you Microsoft. The UI is nicely simple too. It’s a simple formula but with the major alternatives being nagware or CPU hogs I expect this to REALLY take off.
