MS Security Essentials Software Beta - 06-26-2009, 02:14 AM
Just loaded MS Security Essentials software, wondering if anyone else is trying it?
MS website to download:
Microsoft Security Essentials Support
It is a small download.
On some computers, when you start the computer it opens a Windows Explorer window. There is a fix for it:
XPSP3 - Explorer Window at startup and no MSE tray icon
Nevertheless, patching the Registry in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (the MSSE item) by adding quotes, that is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Essentials\msseces.exe" -hide , worked perfectly for me.

They've stopped accepting Beta participants for now. But it will be back soon.
I've been using it on several computers and I like it. Several reviews have been published already and all of them are very positive. Like this one:
