I got the same prompt and I know my windows firewall was already turned on. The prompt I'd like to see though is the one to tell you it was going to turn automatic updates on. When I'm doing a clean install I turn it off until I have all the updates and extra Microsoft programs I use installed from my thumb drive. Then I can turn it on and patch it all in one go when I'm done, without the system being bogged down doing it in the background while I'm trying to install stuff. MSE turns it on when you install it without any warning.

This came put just the right time. I was just looking something to replace my F-Secure 2010 which I got free for four months. I had 26 days left, but I got so annoyed by the reminders of how many days I had left.

MSE works very well, it is fast, quiet, simple and good looking

When I right click a file, I can't see the "Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials..." item. Is this normal?

Does the fAct that it's asking if you want the firewall on or off mean, that the Windows Firewall is now good enough to be used on it's own or is it still highly recomended that you use a seperate firewall?

Fizwin7, i just noticed the same thing. They might have gotten rid of it or it my not work in the beta.

BomberAF, yes, the windows firewall is a lot better than it used to be.

Wow, same here, tried several different file types, zip, exe and folders and no "Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials" option in the right click menu. Something else I've noticed is there is no MSE Icon on the taskbar now.
