Great. Couldn't have done it better myself.

Take a peek in Device Manager.

Otherwise, continue on with your configuration and install apps, etc.

I looked in Device Manager, no yellow exclamation marks. So my disk management looks good? Do I have the a-okay to surf the web now?

Looks good, Lize.

Let us know how performance goes, anything at all.

Yeah, disk management is fine.

Device Manager apparently OK.

Make sure all your external stuff works---printer, external drives, whatever you have.

I'd advise you to download Malwarebytes as another layer of protection to complement Microsoft Security Essentials, but I won't belabor the point.

Keep your eyes peeled on that green MSE icon at the lower right. If it goes orange, something is not kosher.

Look in MSE interface periodically to confirm that you are receiving new virus definition updates---that should happen nearly every day. The date and time of the most recent update is shown on the update tab.
