Microsoft Security Essentials Final Available

29 Set/09

Microsoft has released the final version of their security software program Microsoft Security Essentials to the public. The software which has been released to a limited amount of beta testers earlier this year is now available for download at the new Microsoft Security Essentials website. The software program is provided as a 32-bit download for Windows XP and a 32-bit and 64-bit download for Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Microsoft Security Essentials will check if the operating system is genuine before proceeding with the actual installation of the program. The system requirements lists other requirements like a version of Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, 140 Megabytes of free hard drive space or a computer system with at least one Gigabyte of computer memory.

The program will update the virus and spyware definitions on the first startup and perform a system scan afterwards. The quick scan (that’s what it is called) can actually take some time to complete depending on the files and processes of the operating system. Users who have been using the beta of Microsoft Security Essentials liked the low resource usage of the program. It’s been using roughly 46 Megabytes of computer memory which is more than acceptable. CPU is on the other hand used quite a bit during scans. The computer memory usage will not change at all while the cpu usage drops to zero during times of no active scans.

Interested users can download the final version of Microsoft Security Essentials from the official Microsoft website.
