Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0.1963.0

Please tell me they FINALLY fixed the most annoying bug, which is the bug where the icons to programs load ridiculously slow when exploring files! If they haven't patched this yet, what are they waiting for? They better fix it!! It's maybe the only issue from it being one of the best, near perfect anti-virus programs.

Hopefully it doesn't have its CPU hog moments anymore.

I've noticed a bit of slowdown with this. NOD32 never had that issue. Bit of work to do, but hey, if it's free...

Anyone confirm? I disabled MSE just because of that.

I just got it from within the program. No clue what it does but updates are always welcome. :)

Official "release notes" from the Ongoing Beta newsgroups...

"This version of the Microsoft Security Essentials [...]

contains some enhancements and compatibility fixes to facilitate a

seamless upgrade experience to future versions of Microsoft Security

Essentials."

Though as far as I'm aware, an updated engine was recently released as well, of which users are reporting much faster scan times.

Anyone confirm? I disabled MSE just because of that.

If you need confirmation, it means you've never noticed it or are not affected by it, which means you don't need to disable it.

Personally I've never encountered this issue. :)

Yeah MSE upgraded itself last night.

Never had them for me.

Hmm.. I wasn't able to upload via downloaded file or by WU. I had to remove the old version first.

Noticed no changes as of yet but the process was seamless. Never had an issue whatsoever since it was released, so I'm not really expecting anything to be fixed. :p

Updating now, going to see if these three still exist:

Slow loading of icons (typically a single folder full of 15+ shortcuts pointing to programs scattered across a hard disk works best)

Steals focus of the window you're working on when it performs its auto-update from the tray - which shouldn't happen.

Windows Update notifications daily of a virus definition update - which should be in the background as we don't need to be told of this. (the workaround was to untick Recommended Updates in the WU settings)

Is MSE any good? I have not used it in a while and am curious on performance and if it actually works like it should

Cheers, updating!

I think he meant he is encountering the issue, and is asking for confirmation whether this update fixes it.

I got my update today also, I can say I've never had any of the issues noted in this post.

In fact this is the first I've heard of any such issues.

Everyone seems to stick by their own AV solutions. I've tried it, used it for a month or two when it first came out, but to many small Viruses and Trojans slipped by. Perhaps that has improved but I prefer to stick with established AV solutions like Avast or NOD.

I stick to which ever anti virus makes my system run fastest. The best anti virus solution is the end user. Staying away from stupid sites and avoiding stupid ads.

I use to use AVG but it seem to get slower n slower and more annoying than ever.

Then MSE came along and well it does what I need it to do and it does it fine.

I've never got virus before in my life.

Too many small viruses and trojans are slipping through? What the heck are you doing with your computer? :p

Exchanging documents via an USB flash memory maybe? I had to format three business PCs for my dad just because they were full with adware and spyware that was inserted via USB.

:blink:

What programs would someone install to a business PC that has adware and spyware? I've had to monitor news releases through thousands of web sites at one of my jobs, and I only ever encountered one spyware issues.

So you have used it? It has not changed since it came out first. It's very good for being free. I belive Avast is the only real competitor in the free category. There are some slightly better antivirus programs, but they cost money. Every year.
