Windows 7: Microsoft Security Essentials.

Microsoft Security Essentials.

I notice a high lighted line [Computer Status Potentially Unprotected], what does this really mean? is my computer not protected with installed MSE.
MSE is set in real time and runs daily for checking hard drives.

It will say potentially unprotected if you haven't run a full manual scan after about a week.

It will also show if it misses an update which for me happens when the desktop is loading. This usually happens within the first week or two of installation. After that it goes away.

just do a scan and you will see that go away, and it will turn green again.

Microsoft Security Essentials v1 Vs. v2
So I notice MSE v2 is released. I have v1.0.2498.0 installed, and when I press UPDATE only the definitions are renewed. I don't know whether to uninstal old one and instal v2.0.657. Thing is I've never had any problem with the old one, and if it ain't broke.... Anybody got any thoughts...
