Protect your PC from malicious software using Microsoft Security Essential

Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. The license agreement allows home users and small businesses to install and use the product free of charge. Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want.
MSE provides real-time protection, constantly monitoring activities on the computer and scanning new files as they are downloaded or created. It disables detected threats and prompts for user input on how to deal with them. If no response is received within ten minutes, suspected threats are handled according to the default actions defined in the application’s settings. Depending on those settings, it may also create System Restore checkpoints before removing the detected malware.
