Microsoft Security Essentials Released

Recommended Posts

Microsoft have released their free anti-virus and anti-malware software (codenamed 'Morro') to the public, under the name of 'Microsoft Security Essentials'.

 

Microsoft's intent to release free anti-virus software has been known for as long ago as 2004 when Microsoft bought out GeCad and Pelican Software.

 

Microsoft also purchased Giant Antispyware (which was generally considered to be a good product at the time) and later became Windows Defender, as well as being built into Windows Vista by default.

 

Microsoft previously had Windows Live OneCare, a paid subscription security suite including extras like parental controls and photo backup, but discontinued the product possibly due to user and industry-wide criticism of the product, and that Morro was already on the horizon.
