Microsoft allowed 75,000 people to download the beta of its new Microsoft Security Essentials, but all these places were snapped up in under 24 hours. However, you can still get your hands on the downloads ... if you know where to look!
Here you go ...
I've checked out the downloads and they're the genuine thing and digitally signed.
I've got Microsoft Security Essentials running on a couple of systems and so far, things seem pretty good.
It's basic, but its also free, so the choice is yours.
Remember, this is a beta of a security product, so don't go installing it on critical systems.
