    Honestly this just sounds like OneCare relabeled. Which is fine by me because OneCare is a great product. Anyway its a very interesting read.

    CooL: Not available in your country or region
    You appear to be in a country or region where the Microsoft Security Essentials Beta is unavailable.

    This beta is available only to customers in the United States, Israel (English only), People's Republic of China (Simplified Chinese only) and Brazil (Brazilian Portuguese only).


    Thx MS. :D

    Well the great thing about this program is it will be 100% free when its released. Let the jackasses in the regions allowed try it out and solve the bugs.......thats the way I would look at it :D

    I love how light weight it is. But honestly, I do not need it. I did a scan on my machine and my laptop, my gaming rig is on a month old install, didn't get anything and my laptop is on a 1 year+ install, didn't get anything.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the European Union won't get it because of the anti-trust lawsuits. I don't see any reason why they wouldn't make the finished product available to Australia.


    Inexperienced User + Internet - Anti-Virus = Nothing good...

    It's about time Microsoft commits to protecting their users from malicious software.

    Wonder how it compares to 09? I gotta say, I wasn't really impressed with it compared to 6 or 7.
