New Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0 and 2.0 Releases

Quote:

Whether they’re running Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0 or 2.0, users that are currently leveraging the free security solution for genuine Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP will be able to update their current version this week.

The software giant had planned to release a refresh to Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0’s antimalware engine today, November 15th.

This is nothing more than a monthly update to MSE 1.0 designed to keep up the pace with the evolution of the threat environment.

“As part of regular update of our antimalware technology to address the latest in the threat landscape, MMPC is planning to release a new antimalware engine on 15 November 2010,” a member of the Microsoft Antimalware Engine team stated last week.

“Affected products: Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), Forefront Client Security (FCS) Engine Version will be in the range of 1.1.640X.0.”

However, it appears that the release of the update was delayed until November 16th. “The release date of Antimalware Engine 1.1.640X.0 has changed from 15 November 2010 to 16 November 2010,” the Redmond company revealed.

Thanks for that Jan. Not sure which MSE I'm running. Wasn't aware there were two.

Open the MSE dashboard, click on "Help" in the upper right corner of the screen. Then select "About MSE". This will tell you which version you're running. 2.0 is still in beta testing so unless you specifically opted in to test it you're most likely running 1.0

I highly doubt that MSE is useful. It seems like doing nothing. Anyone have concerns like I do? Or is it just perfect for you?

My KIS 2010 License expires tomorrow, so I think about paying for it. I consider switching to MSE. But it doesn't have any Internet security integrated?

What exactly do you mean by "integrated"? MSE has been favorably compared to several paid programs as well as free programs. It protects against viruses, spyware and other malicious software. Many Forum members recommend MSE with supplemental on demand scans by free Malwarebytes.

As a member of the first beta team for MSE back in July 2009 (think that the correct date) I have had no problems. During testing and after it has identified three different viruses. And, as of yet it hasn't failed to work within the system with any specific application.

Been using the MSE 2 beta for several months without any problems or slow downs brought on by MSE.

At present I would recommend it to anyone running Windows 7, Vista, and XP.

e.g. Kaspersky has two different product Kaspersky Antivirus and Kaspersky Internet Securtiy.

Kaspersky Internet Security has protection against online threats (like phishing, spam control etc) but Kaspersky Antivirus has none. I wonder If the same situation stands for MSE, too.
