Microsoft has released Microsoft Security Essentials 4.0, it's free anti-virus/anti-malware utility after 6 months of beta testing. MSE 4.0 include a streamlined user interface, better performance, and a refined remediation experience for threats that need to be quarantined.
MSE's "Automatic Remediation" now does a better job of quarantining threats on its own, for instance, no user intervention required. And Microsoft claims scanning performance and malware detection rates have both improved on the previous build.
The program can now also use the Microsoft Active Protection Service (the new name for SpyNet) to automatically report malware to Microsoft, helping the company to create new definitions and more quickly respond to new outbreaks.
Download MSE 4.0
MSE 4.0 runs on Windows XP with SP3, Vista with SP1/SP2, or Windows 7.
MSE will be bundled with Windows Defender in Windows 8, negating the need for a separate download in the future.
