    Microsoft Security Essentials thinks Chrome is Malware

    Apparently the latest signatures fix the problem. I can run Chrome and MSE with no issues on my PC.

    It certainly exhibits some trojan-like characteristics, as do several of the Sysinternals and NirSoft utilites, and many AVs seem to object to them.
    And I am really unimpressed by having a Chrome install foisted on me unless I change the default, when I install some totally unrelated program.
