The Above Screen Capture is of the Newly Released Microsoft Security Essentials - Ofcourse it is just after installing, so showing my computer is at risk and has to download the virus defintions

 So atlast Microsoft enters the Anti virus business, and that too free - can you believe? So sleepless nights for Anti virus Legends Macafee and Norton. After a short three-month beta program, Microsoft is officially releasing Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), its free, real-time consumer antimalware solution for fighting viruses, spyware, rootkits, and Trojans. MSE is yet another layer of defense the company is offering to help its customers fight the threats that plague Windows PCs.

The Microsoft Website says about it's product in plain simple sweet english like this-

"Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a free* download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and always kept up to date so you can be assured your PC is protected by the latest technology. It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.

Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want—without interruptions or long computer wait times."

The installer file is 8.61 MB  for Windows and some 4.28 MB for Windows Vista.
