Microsoft Security Essentials released

Right now, Microsoft released its free security program, Microsoft Security Essential. It can not work on Windows 2000.
Operating System Requirement: Genuine Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3); Windows Vista (Gold, Service Pack 1, or Service Pack 2); Windows 7
Let’s see what he said about it:

I am not very sure how good it is. You would better try it yourself and leave your comment to tell others how it works.
You can get it free here.
