Microsoft Security Essentials beta version is now publicly available. Instructions for Developer Preview installs:

    Question

  • Microsoft Security Essentials beta version is now publicly available.  https://connect.microsoft.com/site981/program7299  If, you try to install on Windows 8 Developer Preview, you will need to download the setup file (for 32bit or 64bit version; depending on the version you are testing/evaluating)... file the file location on your computer, then right click the setup file.... go down to properties... then click on compatibility tab...  I suggest you run it as Windows 7 (in fact, you must run as Win 7 or Win Vista).  Cheers!

  • Absolutely... in fact when you install MSE.....  whether beta or not... it will disable Windows Defender and serve in its place.  MS Security Essentials is a very excellent truly free antiviral product.

  • Haven't on Win 8 Dev Pre 32 or 64.  Is the process a known one?  Was it definitely mal-process?  If so, can you send or provide some info on it (including maybe any event log entries)?   eventvwr.msc  then  under System you have to right click and select the view > filter (by Event Source: Microsoft Antimalware).

     

    Thanks.
