Go to this site and download all virus test files Tried it and MSE was able to detect the virus.
I just got off MS Connect & there is a bad bug issue directly related to this!!!
After you download these files MSE won't let you delete the files & quarantines them & every time you try to "Clean" them & get rid of them they are detected over & over but you can't get rid of them as it say it's not found!!! Yea...screwy....

I'm watching this bug report on this & it's unresolved as of yet, so this is a VERY BAD IDEA!!!

MSE 'official' installed (no probs)

I notice that this 'official' release takes about 20% more ram than the leaked version.
leak ~ 30MB
beta ~ 40MB

wonder whats changed....

I was actually able to get it quite easily. I'm uninstalling the version I have now and putting on the official beta.

@Jacee, good find. I'm enrolled in the beta and I don't see a problem related to this bug. BTW, the person reporting the bug, David is a mod over at JCXP.net.

I also do not see the problem regarding this bug, I mean that it is not affecting me.

Also consider the fact that MS may have focused on MSE (windows 7 version) being working for Build 7100 specifically?

I see many people here using leaked builds so keep that in mind.

Just in case anyone running Morro - MSE (leaked) is unclear why their MSE Beta says there is a later version installed - it is to do with numbering.

Simply uninstall the leaked version and reinstall the beta. No restarts are required.

Updating definitions, downloading the beta etc are now all running fast.

You will need to correct your settings to your liking as MSE will not remember your (previous) "leaked" settings.

Also in case the above posts in anyway implied that MSE is going to cost money - everything Microsoft have said - that is "officially" - is that MSE is and will be completely free. Symantec and the rest must be bleeding badly.

I bet they will be so desperate to make money that they'll give crazy discounts for their top products.
