If you are using Windows 8, I don’t think you can install Microsoft Security Essentials because Windows 8 itself already has its own antivirus called Windows Defender and it is built-in with the operating system. Also, Microsoft Security Essentials does not support Windows 8 and later. Microsoft Security Essentials 4.0 and earlier works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 but not on Windows 8.

The succeeding version, Microsoft Security Essentials 4.5, does not support Windows XP. MSE or Microsoft Security Essentials is an antivirus developed by Microsoft providing protection against different malicious software like Trojan horses, spyware, viruses, and rootkits. When a problem or threat is detected, Microsoft Security Essentials automatically blocks it then alerts the user.

Microsoft Security Essentials is free for home and small businesses with up to ten computers.
