Windows 7: MSE - spread the word

MSE - spread the word

I was browsing a random PC store and of course saw copies of Kaspersky and Norton. However, with Microsoft Security Essentials, these are now unnecessary. I decided to post this. So, at the risk of being booted out of stores, advise people looking for new antimalware apps to get MSE:

Someone said to me Microsoft should put MSE on disc and sell it in stores for a small fee. Had to explain to him that MSE was only about 15mb (the installation program that is) so it'd be rather pointless. Maybe pamphlets?

Ever wonder what would happen if you stood by the stand in Walmart, telling everyone who comes to buy to download MSE?

I'd likely be offered a job as a greeter. Everytime I go into the electronics department I somehow manage to 'help people' and get them to buy stuff (I swear.. they were interested in it before I said anything!).

I should test that though. I have to go to walmart tomorrow anyways. lol

I'm serious. I will do it tomorrow.

No and I won't unless it out performs what I currently use.
