srq2625,

My system is a Intel core 2 Quad running a x64 os (win 7 and vista), and both run MSE at about 7.2 Mb.

For those who are looking to download MSE go to Mininova and just type in Microsoft Security Essentials and you should get the application.

I think someone tested it, but I don't know.
