Well my email is available 24/7 since I have the copies of MSE that came directly from Connect.Microsoft.com

Legal? Does that mean a leaked-free-product is illegal? :O

Having used this and read expert reviews, I wouldn't recommend this yet.

Its weaknesses are detecting and removing rootkits. Also, it doesn't detect or remove keyloggers well. Ok it's still in beta, so theres room for improvement.

I would recommend Norton Internet Security 2010 beta, it detects high amounts of all malware (rootkits/keyloggers/viruses/etc...) than all others. It even has the prestigious PC MAG editors rating. And guess what? It's still in beta! Just wait until it's released in September 2009. :)

I will advise the exact opposite, to use Morro, and not use Norton.
