Marko, this needs updating to new version 2.0

Microsoft Security Essentials:

*Good detection rates
*Simple interface, very easy to use
*Light on resources
*Very few false positives

**One of the best free anti-virus programs, an especially good choice for novices.
Just updated to v.4.0.1526.0, and I must say the new interface is now very simple in appearance. Must be trying to fit into that Windows 8 mode.
Got put onto this by FBB a year or few ago, and like any antivirus it isn't the total solution, but MSSE seems to mark the point where Microsoft started doing more things right than wrong:)
