Microsoft to release free anti-virus software soon

According to several sources, MS will release the official software for “Security Essentials”. This is, according to MS a basic AV and anti spyware software and is supposed to have a smaller footprint that other commercial products (that’s not hard to do). Beta testers have been told to expect it in the next several weeks (whatever that means).

Reports I’ve seen are mixed. It’s going to be interesting to see how it works and what the response is.

BTW, if you have a pirated copy of windows, you won’t be able to get it, according to MS.
