Microsoft Security Essentials was first introduced by Microsoft as its Free Antivirus in the year September 2009. It has been designed for the use in Windows XP, Vista and 7. While it has also been designed to protect User from the Virus as well as Spyware products.
However, the Number of Users that can use the Beta Version is currently Limited which has been explained by the Microsoft Spoke Person saying that
We anticipate the Microsoft Security Essentials beta to be available to the general public by the end of the year.
One of the most intersting thing about it is that Microsoft has now started inviting all of the Beta Testers to join them and have more implications about this new Beta tool. Microsoft has also announced that the next version of Microsoft Security Essentials beta Version 2 will be available at the end of December Month.
Microsoft has finally started the steps to bring out new version of Microsoft Security Essentials 2012 which will include the following features.
- Enhanced protection through automatic malware remediation – The Beta will clean high-impact malware infections automatically, with no required user interaction.
- Enhanced performance – The Beta includes many performance improvements to make sure your PC performance isn’t negatively impacted.
- Simplified UI – Simplified UI makes Microsoft Security Essentials Beta easier to use.
- New and improved protection engine – The updated engine offers enhanced detection and cleanup capabilities.
Microsoft Security Essentials has some of the disadvantages like it has the slowest speed in scanning the data as of what we have compared with the rest of the Anti-Virus or the Anti-Spywares. While one of the most intersting thing in the earlier MSE was that it shows that 4.5GB of data can be scanned within time period of 3 Minutes and 24 Seconds, however it is not so. But with the new Beta version, all these problems are finally solved with better User Experience.
