I did look around on the MSE web site, and there is not much of a change from ver.1, It might be like Airbot said
Quote:
If you can't update from your existing program, just use the link to the new one and install over it, or clean install it.

It's not a beta, the support page probably hasn't been updated yet, along with the program internal update. Need to give it time, sometimes it takes a few days after before you get notice.
Will have to check it in a few days, maybe after the holidays.

The MS Social-Net forum does suggest to un-install MSE1 plus any other A-V programs a user may have, before in-stalling Ver2, but I went ahead, and just installed over MSE1.
The action center did ask me twice to okay the installation which I did, and it went on to finish the installation.

It's pretty new for me, so I haven't noticed any ill effects (Slowdowns).

The MS S-N forum did have posts about the high memory usage for MSE2beta, but from what I saw they were aware of it, and were working to get it under control with later updates.

Don't forget, It will be somewhat higher because of the added Network Security.

I just updated through the link in Airbot's first post. Installed over the old one, and it appears to be working just fine.

Microsoft Security Essentials 2 released

Microsoft Security Essentials 2 Released, Still the Best Darn AntiVirus Around

Quote:


Windows:

We've learned to stop worrying about AntiVirus software since Microsoft released their great Microsoft Security Essentials suite, but today it gets even better, improving Windows Firewall integration, network traffic inspection, and an heuristic scanning engine.

Microsoft's next version of Security Essentials is actually a pretty great update from its already-great predecessor. Microsoft's option has always been adequate at finding new malware without definitions, but the addition of an heuristic engine bumps its power up quite a bit. It may be subject to a few more false positives, but you're much less likely to get hit with malware than ever before.

It also includes some Windows Firewall integration that lets you tweak the Firewall from inside Security Essentials, as well as a network inspection feature that can inspect traffic as you browse, which is pretty neat. All in all, if you're using Microsoft Security Essentials (and why wouldn't you be?), you'll want to grab this update. Hit the link below to manually download and install the update.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a free download for Windows.

Useful if you are still on MSE1 and/or didn't got it as an Windows Update package.

Wow, a whopping 30-60MB of RAM. That's only a fraction of the RAM that other things like browsers, email clients, instant messengers....and the like take.

I mean if you have 2GB, 4GB or 8GB of RAM.....30-60MB of RAM is a pretty non-consequential amount for something that is helping to provide security and protection for your computer. RAM is cheap and I don't think many on Windows 7 are trying to run with less than 1GB of RAM.

Got it. Still one of the best I've ever used. Maybe the best. Small footprint, and keeping it honest with Malwarebytes has been successful since I joined the two.

Even on a netbook with 1GB of RAM, this wouldn't be an issue, would it? I can't think of anything lighter-weight to run than MSE....lol.

I noticed that the EULA still references this as Pre-Release software. And it's also not the latest version and doesn't have the network component piece. So, I don't think you always get the latest version if you get it from the Microsoft links noted at the start of this thread. I certainly didn't.

Security Essentials Version: 2.0.375.0
Antimalware Client Version: 3.0.6509.0
Engine Version: 1.1.6402.0
Antivirus definition: 1.95.2015.0
Antispyware definition: 1.95.2015.0

I am running the 64-bit version.

Looks good, but here's hoping that they KEEP it small. If it keeps adding and adding and adding then it'll be no better than some of the other giant bloated laggy suites out there. I've seen so many small, light, fast programs bloat up into compeltely unusable "suites" in my day... it's the natural evolution of software it seems :/
