Windows 7: Security Essentials 2011 Is Not MSE 2.0 or 1

Security Essentials 2011 Is Not MSE 2.0 or 1


Microsoft is currently gearing up to release Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0, the successor to version 1.0, which was developed under the Morro codename.

But the Redmond company is not looking to rebrand the free security solution that itís offering for genuine Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP, no matter what kind of Security Essentials flavors users might come across in the wild.

Case in point: Security Essentials 2011. Security Essentials 2011 is not Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0, or MSE 1.0, for that matter.

Some users, including many victims of scareware, might already be familiar with Security Essentials 2010, a rogue antivirus that the Redmond company tackled earlier this year.

Well, Security Essentials 2011 is also a fake antivirus, completely useless, in the sense that it is only designed to scare users into thinking their PCs are infected so that they will pay for a full license of the rogue AV.
