    I already had version 2. I wonder if the newest update is for new installations and that this update was included in a past update.

    I think version 2 was a beta until yesterday. This one should be the release version.

    Good morning chowur.

    >>> The latest,Security Essentials is out of beta.

    Tough one. How to know which version is working here ? I went to C:\ -> Programme Files -> Microsoft Security Client -> Setup ( Properties ), it showed v2.0.0657.0 ! Is this it ?

    A Merry one to you.........Jean.

    Indeed, that's the latest.
    It's a weird thing that there is no way to check which version you are running other than checking a file or process properties.

    Yes, there is. Open MSE and click on the "down arrow" next to Help (obvious - not) !

    Oh, you are right. You better be sure to click the arrow and not the Help word, which is what I did before. Talk about good user interfaces!

    The graphic below shows the latest version numbers. I tried using the upgrade option on the MSE Help menu and it said my wife's computer was already using the latest version...not so! Looks like you have to manually download this one for now. However, you can just install over the old version it will recognize it as an Upgrade and proceed accordingly.

    Update: One quirk of the update is that if you had configured the Notification area to show the MSE Icon you'll have to do it again as the update hides it.

    chowur,
    It amazes me how willing everyone is to trust MSE ...when it provides a "backdoor" of information directly to MS...I guess cause it's "Free" go figure Regards Fred

    Fred,

    You are not forced to join SpyNet:


    [attachment=90963:MSE.JPG]


    Personally, I have no problems contributing to SpyNet. It's a case of contributing to better malware protection for all.

    I think people use MSE because it is a really good AV app, as so many reviewers, some even from Windows Secrets, have found.

    Perhaps THIS is the one you were looking for Fred?

    [attachment=90962:MSE.png]

    But then that simply wouldn't coincide with your endless and tiresome tirades against anything Microsoft, would it? But then why post information that might be in opposition to your "opinions".

    It's really getting quite boring Fred!

    Rui, Rebel,
    Hello.. Thanks you for your responses as i don't use "Mickey MSE" i wasn't aware ... so i stand corrected .. Just don't have any trust in MS when it comes to some things. Rebel ( Ouch !) Sorry if i bore you with my "tiresome tirades" Just think that there should be "both sides" presented, and every one should have as much information as possible.... even if you don't like it...Does this mean that you won't be coming to my Christmas Party ? Regards Fred

    Well, if you were not "aware", then why bother posting inaccuracies?

    As far as "both sides being presented, and everyone should have as much information as possible. ...." - you are absolutely correct. But "information" (at least in most cases) is based on facts - not personal, biased, and in many cases - uninformed opinions. I find it sad that as a relatively new "moderator", you seem compelled to continually bash Microsoft at every possible opportunity. But then, you've been doing that ever since you first joined the old "Woody's Lounge". And no Fred, I won't be coming to your Christmas party. I'm afraid I might find some Hemlock in my eggnog.

    Fred,

    I wouldn't pretend to tell anyone how they should behave, but I would think members stand to benefit the most from experience. It's rather risky to comment on something you have no experience with, cause then your advice may not be that valuable...
