FWIW: Over the years I've tried several paid products including Norton, McAfee, TrendMicro, and CA (formerly Computer Associates.) I've also tried several free products including Avast, Avira, and AVG. Not until I tried MSE (back when 1.0 was in Beta as Morro) did I finally feel that I found the right product for my machine. I've always instinctively felt that Microsoft should know its own operating system better than any other vendor and, therefore, be able to protect its OS better than anyone else. So far, MSE has lived up to all my expectations, including the new 2.0 Beta.
I've also noticed that MSE seems to update twice a day, even on weekends and holidays. The updates may be slow to arrive via Windows Updates but they can always be accessed directly from the Microsoft Malware Protection Center: Install the latest Microsoft Security Essentials definition updates - Get the latest definitions - Microsoft Malware Protection Center
