msseces.exe is Microsoft Security Essentials 2 process which is using only 11MB. It jumps between 9MB to 12MB.
MsMpEng.exe is Microsoft Windows Defender process which uses 55MB to 60MB. MsMpEng.exe comes with Live Oce Care and MSE 2 too but I think it can be disabled (not recommended for anti-spyware).
The user interface is simplest I've ever seen. It doesn't consume huge amount of RAM when scanning and has good detection rate according to AV-Comparatives.
New features in MSE2:
- Windows Firewall integration. Security Essentials setup enables you to turn on or off Windows Firewall.
- Network Inspection System. This feature enhances real-time protection by inspecting network traffic to help proactively block exploitation of known network-based vulnerabilities.
- New and improved protection engine. The updated engine offers enhanced detection and cleanup capabilities with better performance
