Windows 7: Microsoft Security Essentials Final Available!

I had read that MS was releasing updates 3 times a day and that MSE would only update about once a day depending on some unknown time frame. I will wait and see if Windows Update keeps up with the 3 times a day schedule or something different. The update I got this afternoon was 1.77.911.0 and was released at 4:09 am this morning. Only time will tell.

Ive just had 2 lots in one update. Seems a bit excessive when 1 update a day would suffice.

I think this is a bad move on MS' part. The Windows Update notification is annoying on a daily basis. The old MSE update process was seamless and required no user intervention. MS is ignoring the bulk of advanced users who do not have Windows Update set to install automatically.

I'm seriously thinking of downgrading MSE and then ignoring / hiding the program update. Thoughts?

Hold your fire.

I have been automatically updated with no intervention to 1.77.970 in the last few hours. I got that notice about an available update at Windows Update yesterday and ignored it. Today, I did not get that notice, which is good. I have WU set to check for updates, but not download or install.

If I have to, I will set WU to never check for updates.

Since I upgraded I have been getting this error in Event Viewer.

Session "Microsoft Security Essentials OOBE" stopped due to following error; 0xC000000D

Looks like other people getting same error

Session "Microsoft Security Essentials OOBE" stopped message in Event Viewer after recent Upgrade.

I uninstalled MSE and re-downloaded and installed but same error on startup.

Anybody else getting this error?

Alright, i'll try the same. Right now I have the WU notification for new definition files. I've got the 1.77.970 files right now. Lets see what happens if I ignore it for 24 hours.

EDIT: in the last 20 minutes, MSE must have updated itself, so the WU notification is gone, for now. ignatzatsonic, did you get a WU notification today for the .990 files?

EDIT 2: WU notification popped up again for the new definition .1038 files. What a real pain in the a$$.

I do find the new WU update format for MSE to be annoying. I liked downloading the files whenever I wanted, rather than having an annoying pop=up show up every morning I start my computer.

Slight correction to my post.

I DO get the popup notification in my system tray telling me about a new update available. It seems to happen shortly after I start up for the day.

I always ignore it.

But I am upgraded to new definitions automatically even though I ignore the notice.

I have been updated to 1.77.1038 in the last few minutes. I started my PC for the day for the first time about 30 minutes ago.

I'd prefer not to get this popup even though it can be ignored. I assume the only way to do that is to set Windows Update to not even check for updates. I may or may not try that. I periodically go to WU manually anyway.

Pay AV companies biting the bullet.

I wonder what companies like Norton and McAffy (are they still around?) are going to do in retaliation , if anything. I guess they will just have to bite the bullet because who is going to pay $40+ a year when they can get MSE for free?

Probably. MSE has everything you need.
