Received the following from Microsoft today:
Dear Beta User,
Thank you for joining the Microsoft® Security Essentials Beta. We hope you find Security Essentials to be easy to install and use.
The Microsoft Security Essentials beta is a fully functional anti-malware service with ongoing signature updates so you can be assured that your PC will remain protected from viruses, spyware and other malicious software throughout the course of the beta. In addition, we will be providing beta software updates for download through Microsoft Update on a periodic basis. To have these updates installed automatically, you must be subscribed to Microsoft Update with preferences set to automatically download and install new updates. For more information about automatic updates through Microsoft Update, please click here.
Here are some important links that will help you get the most out of your Microsoft Security Essentials experience:
Over the course of the beta, you will receive additional emails from Microsoft inviting you to participate in optional surveys. These surveys help us capture important feedback that will guide future product enhancements so participation is appreciated.
At the end of the beta, beta participants who are subscribed to automatic updates will be upgraded to the released version of Microsoft Security Essentials. Instructions for manually upgrading will be included in an email you will receive at the end of the beta period.
Please note: To continue receiving technical support you will need to upgrade or install the final version of Microsoft Security Essentials once it is released.
Thanks again for participating in the Microsoft Security Essentials Beta.
Microsoft Security Essentials Team
It is good to know that they will be supporting MSE. Here is hoping those who were unable to get a copy will not have to wait long. Remember there are torrent sites that have this Free AV and Malware Application.
