    Default Microsoft Security Essentials (Morro)

    It's a very lightweight (5mb) virus and spyware protection suite developed by MS. It's free forever, with no yearly activations or upsells. Since the anti-malware engine is based on OneCare, it's safe to say it will also be the best protection software as far as detections and false positives go. A beta will be available on 6/23 at this location:
    http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials *Link will become active on the 23rd*. It runs on XP, Vista, and 7, and will be available in 64bit for the latter two.

    For anyone interested Microsoft Security Essentials is now available to anyone running a genuine version of XP, Vista or Windows 7.

    I have just installed it on an old P3 933 running only 384 Mb of ram and the instal was very quick and the initial full system scan was also very fast. This was a basic new instal done this afternoon for my twins to use.

    I will instal this on the other 2 computers for the kids, my wifes computer and my Win 7 machine and report back in a few weeks as to its performance.

    Update: I installed on another computer as I was very disapointed with the performance of AVG 8.5 which slowed the system to a crawl at times.

    The system is another P3 but a 997 MHz with 512MB's of ram. The instal went perfect and quick as did the defenitions update. The full system scan however took almost an hour but my daughter has a lot of stuff crammed on this computer.

    The Full system scan may have taken alot longer than I would have wanted but I was using the computer surfing and emailing and the computer did not slow down at all like when using AVG Free.

    So far I am feeling good about the product but time will tell. I have another computer to do for my other daughter which is a Pentium D 920 with 4 GB's of Ram. This system will get a fresh instal of XP PRO first.
