Will this just be a nicer front-end for Forefront Client Security? I'm using that now and it's quite nice, really.

I dunno how well its going to work, I havnt needed AV in two years so I doubt its going to find anything the entire time I use it

Im not sure why but Morro downloaded about 200mb of files after installation, thats inc Definitions but its still downloading even though that finished

Thanks for the link RedSoxm16.

Would this be good to install on Win7x64 as a primary AV? I have been running Avast and it is about to expire. The new 7 Builds are coming in so fast...I am trying to hold off reinstalling until "RTM".

If "Morro" is a good solution and kept up to date...I would sure run it.
