Microsoft Security Essentials

PC World has published a list of technology products they consider the best of 2010. Since October is Cybersecurity month, I would be remiss if I did not point out a product on the list that would provide security coverage for your home computing needs. Number 10 on the list, Microsoft Security Essentials,  is a free downloadable anti-virus software that provides real-time protection for home computers. This protection consists of spy ware, viruses, worms, Trojans and other malicious software (malware). Microsoft Security Essentials is kept up-to-date via automatic updates as is customary today with similar products. To see how this product compared with other products in the security category for Windows 7, you can check out test results done by AV Testing at The results for Windows XP will be out soon and Windows Vista the fourth quarter of this year. While there, you will notice that well known security software did not do as well as Microsoft Security Essentials; this is food for thought!

Note: Your PC must be running Genuine Windows software to install Microsoft Security Essentials.
