Microsoft Security Essentials Anti-Virus Software Available For Download

Now you truly have no excuse to run an anti-virus application on your Windows PC. Microsoft Security Essentials is now out and you can download it from here. It works with XP, Vista, and Windows 7 and does the following according to the software giant:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a free* download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and always kept up to date so you can be assured your PC is protected by the latest technology. It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.

You’ll note the asterisk after the word free. It just happens to denote a rather important point:

*Your PC must run genuine Windows to install Microsoft Security Essentials.

That means that if you got your copy of Windows from the back of a truck, you’re out of luck.  Too bad they have to use the much hated WGA software to validate that your copy of Windows.

In any case, I’ll be sucking down a copy and installing it on my Windows 7 box. I’ll let you know what I think of it.
