Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1
 
 

From the information that I have heard, mse2 will uninstall mse1 and install without any problems.
I understand that there are more options available in 2 than there were in 1.

Read through the first two pages and got lazy. This new version of MSE is not available through update?

I did a reinstall for a friend of XP and the version of MSE I downloaded looked different. I figured it was because of the OS and because no aero. LOL

So I have to uninstall my version and download the latest. Whats this talk aout beta version. The version I'm running is out of beta?

I've been running Beta 2.0 and mine updated through MS/WinUpdates two days ago. Looks like if one is running the Beta version, it will eventually update.

still nothing through WU as an upgrade from 1 to 2.
as in, if you're running 1, no option to upgrade to 2

There's nothing wrong with downloading from their site. I do remember back in October 2010, there was an update that came through windows update.

too much work
leads one to the eventual "well, it works fine right now..." conundrum and then ones' mind shifts to other thoughts like eggs & bakey

As to why it uses that much, I have no idea.

Good luck.
For me - RAM usage should be based on what I actually get for my usage. I am fine with giving up 66MB if I get 66MB worth of functionality. But when my retail version of ESET 4.0xx is using 45MB and kicks this lowly thing to the curb for actual function - I have to wonder whose running the MSE dev department.

Sounds to me like MS figures they can just take all the RAM they need for the hell of it and not give the users anything in the way of efficient code or function for that memory usage.

And yes - I understand that 66MB out of 4GB is nothing. And I understand that MSE is free and that I do have a choice. But it's a sad state of affairs if every single app I used took 66 or 100MB or 300MB per instance - just because they can - pretty soon a guy wouldn't be "putting the slackers to work"...he would be exhaust all his resources at the expense of someone's idea of bloated, crappy code.

Say what you will about ESET and the others out there...but 45MB is 45MB and what I actually get to do for that 45MB in ESET makes MSE laughable for what it requires to fund it's 3 or 4 useful functions.

66 - 45 = 21

That's actually how much RAM you are complaining about.
