Interesting, but Wikipedia may be wrong or right here:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Stable release 4 months ago.

You don't have to uninstall and or reinstall.
Just open MSE and open the help menu at the top right of the main screen and select UPGRADE.
This is differenet from UPDATING definitions.
Worked for me.

Thanks

Having just done a reinstall of 7, I decided to try M.S.E as people on here have recommended it before, and I'm quite impressed so far.

Decided to give it a try...

Two problems.

1) Don't see an option to setup more then one scan. (I always setup my anti-virus scans every Monday and Thursday.)

2) Don't see an option to have it automatically update definitions daily.

Anyone have a remedy?

You can only set one scheduled scan once a week or on a daily basis with MSE. To update definitions, you have to do it manually or set it to auto before running a schedule scan.

Microsoft Security Essentials v1 Vs. v2
So I notice MSE v2 is released. I have v1.0.2498.0 installed, and when I press UPDATE only the definitions are renewed. I don't know whether to uninstal old one and instal v2.0.657. Thing is I've never had any problem with the old one, and if it ain't broke.... Anybody got any thoughts...
