New Security Essentials version(21 posts)
My Sentiments exactly. Thanks for the heads up. ...and will us lazy folks get it automagically?
I will warn the Chefkat that there may be several versions of shutdown/startup music round here about 3am.
@ Xhi - Yep, I found it being offered in Windows Updates.
Also in the list of updates (2) is "Bing Desktop"??
Hmmmm. I think I'll wait a few day before installing MSE update and a few YEARS on Bing Desktop.

" MSE veterans won't notice a lot of huge changes in this version, but certain interface elements have changed slightly—the icons along the top are gone, and certain wordings have changed a bit to make the program easier to use. The "Real-Time Protection" setting is now an all-or-nothing checkbox, and SpyNet has been renamed to the Microsoft Active Protection Service to make a bit clearer what it actually does. Microsoft has also baked in some performance improvements and better detection powers. "
Still looking for the performance and better protection power reference from MS.
Aesthetically i'm not a fan of it.
Looks to basic compared to the previous, however the only thing that seems to be different (gui aside) is the antimalware update. The Build version is the same thought they may have classed it as version 2.2.
But , if it does the job even better then I certainly won't be complaining, the proof is in th pudding as they say.
