Microsoft Security Essentials is a free antivirus software designed for personal computers running a genuine Windows operating system or earlier versions. Most people don’t realize they can get a fully functional antivirus software for free and they end up having to buy expensive antivirus software that is not necessarily better than Microsoft Security Essentials. Microsoft Security Essentials protects against Trojan horses, rootkits, spyware, ransomware, among other common and upcoming forms of malware. Users have a choice between running a full system scan, a quick scan, or a custom scan. A custom scan allows you to scan a specific folder while a quick scan quickly scans files to detect any threats. I recommend a because it performs an in-depth scan of all files on your computer and zeros in on all virus hiding in dark corners in your hard drive. Regular updates are available for download from the Microsoft website to help keep Microsoft Security Essentials up to date to fight new forms of malware. Windows Defender replaced Microsoft Security Essentials in machines running Windows 8 or newer OS versions.
