Why is this thread still going? I posted this topic a few seconds after it was first announced and mine was moved to Security?

I had a hard time installing the new beta of MSE. I hadda uninstall NIS 2010 FIRST, then install MSE. This was after a NUMBER of times attempting to do this. Finally got MSE on my WinXP and Win7 machines. Seems to be running fine SO FAR!

You're complaining WHY? You should know by now that it's not good to run more than one AV program together at same time. I had to uninstall the RTM version of MSE to install the new Beta and had no problems whatsoever. I think it's good Microsoft is forcing people to remove other AV programs while wanting to run MSE, we all know how many lazy non-tech people are out there.

I have to agree, it is a good thing MSE forces this. I have to many friends that think its good and better to run two+ antivirus programs at the same time. I end up fixing their problems in the end. :|

unless you manually edit out the drivers/other being loaded for the real time protection, then yea any other scanners offering a form of real time protection will generally interfere with each other and cause massive slowdowns/bsod etc... if you are advanced enough to know what and where to unload upon boot you can enable multiple scanners and dedicate one to realtime protection.

Again, from what I read, it was those who participated in the Windows 7 Beta Program that received the first round of invites.

Well, I just checked. If it is up on Connect, then I am still applied from the last beta.

Slimy said that the new build is 1676, and I have 1611....?
