Thanks for the heads up.

Any idea where to find a change log/version history? I can never find them for MS products.

TIA

There is not a changelog for any version of MSE.

I've just installed it and as I already had MSE installed, this version installs as an upgrade.

It's anti-virus database must be a lot bigger as the original version was a 9 MB download, this version is 12 MB.

Hmmm, It's still the same version as I had, from 2010.

That probably explains why I can't find it. ;-) That's one of my problems with MS. Really difficult to decide if you want to try a new version if you can't get an idea what's new. Oh well such is life...

Thank you kindly for the reply.

Weird, the package I downloaded was 9MB and said I need to first uninstall MSE. MS strikes again. Still same version for me.
EDIT:Aha!, this works better, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...ity-essentials
Indeed, it upgraded.
