Looking for free antivirus software?

Then check out Microsofts new product.

Microsoft's new antimalware solution, Microsoft Security Essentials, is now available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Ars puts MSE through its paces and finds an unobtrusive app with a clean interface that protected us in the dark corners of the Internet.

When MSE detects that a file is making suspicious actions (such as unexpected network connections, attempting to modify privileged parts of the system, or downloading known malicious content) and it has no virus signature for it, MSE will send a profile of the suspected malware to Microsoft's servers.

If there is a new signature for it, one that has yet to be sent out to the MSE client, MSE will be told how to clean the file. In this way, DSS helps ensure users stay protected by the most current virus definitions available without having to wait for the next scheduled download.

Everyone currently using free antimalware software should give it a shot, and those with paid solutions should think about taking MSE for a spin before renewing subscriptions.
