I just spent half an hour debating whether or not to go uninstall it and install the regular version because of what you said.

On a different note. I just noticed the option about only running the scheduled scan when the computer was on and not is use. I know this was also present in the original, but never thought about it much. I decided to turn that off. I care more about the scan running then my computer being fast.
If it crashes her computer and deletes all of her data, you would think twice. Beta is beta for a reason.
lmfao why would a BETA AV do that... even if its beta ... its seriously impossible LOL!

anyway cant wait for final release

does anyone know why the original mse turned off the firewall, and the beta gives you the option to turn the firewall back on?

I'm not sure if it did or not. Some people say it did, some people say it didn't. My guess would be that it is just letting you know that you can control all of your security needs via MSE. After all a firewalll is essential.

I don't think MSE turned off the firewall. It does disable the windows defender that is installed with windows 7, it has it's own version (or equivalent to) built in.

Just a guess but I'd say 90 days or less. Original Morro beta came out in June 09 and public release as Security Essentials was late Sept 09 if I remember correctly. If I'm wrong I'm sure other forum contributors will correct me.
