And Yet Another Anti-Virus

Everyone knows that if you should always have some sort of active and up to date anti-virus program running on your computer.  Everyone also knows that there are tons of choices to choose from; from software that costs money (Norton, McAfee, CA, Vipre, AVG, Kaspersky…), to free packages like AVG and online scans like housecall.

Yesterday Microsoft just released version 2.0 of their Security Essentials product.  It is a free download and integrates tightly with those using Windows Vista or Windows 7.  So here is another free player on the block that gives you a no-cost option to keeping your computer safe.

But how good is it?  Independent testers put it threw its paces and were pleasantly surprised.  It’s not the best and it’s not the worst.  So for a good, solid anti-virus tool that integrates tightly with your OS, you might want to give it a go.
