Microsoft confirmed that it will make their free security software suite Security Essentials, which has been in development for almost a year, available free to all general public.
Microsoft seem really want to make sure that Windows PCs are secure and malware-free. Because if they aren't, it reflects badly on the company that many blame for the problem in the first place. Microsoft has released security software over the past few years. There are (were?) the Windows Firewall and Windows Defender, and for a long time there has been Windows Live OneCare. But the subscription-based OneCare is no more, and in its place is a free alternative that was first mooted last year under the codename Morro.
According to reports, the beta version of Security Essentials has received very positive reviews.
Well, it is free, and it might worth a try.
