I had a few “Hit the button at the wrong time” issues :) with my post about Security Essentials the Other day. So I wanted to make a few things clear.

 

1. This is the replacement for ONECARE – although we will be supporting customers until the end of their current subscription.

2. Security Essentials is the released version of the Morro product that has been talked about for a while now.

3. Security Essentials is a malaware protection product only. For full details please reference the following web site.

But the great news is that it is FREE, SUPPORTED AND RECEIVES REGULAR UPDATES WITHOUT ANY ANNOYING BUGGING POPUPS for adverts etc etc.
