Microsoft Security Essentials can be downloaded for free from the Microsoft website. It supports Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you don’t have it yet on your computer and you are using one of these operating systems, go to Security Essentials Download. From the list, select the language you preferred then download the version according to your operating system architecture.

The latest antivirus from Microsoft is Windows Defender and it comes pre-installed with Windows RT, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. Windows Defender is also available in Windows 7 but the only limitation is that it only offers spyware protection. Microsoft Security Essentials or MSE is an antivirus developed by Microsoft that provides protection against various malicious software like Trojan horses, spyware, viruses, and rootkits.

Microsoft Security Essentials 4.0 and earlier works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 but not on Windows 8 and later because it already has its own security subsystem or antivirus component called Windows Defender. The succeeding version, Microsoft Security Essentials 4.5, does not support Windows XP. When a problem or threat is detected, Microsoft Security Essentials automatically blocks it then alerts the user.
