Microsoft to Release Free Anti-Virus Software [groovyNews]

According to the email I received last night, Microsoft is only a few weeks away from releasing the Gold RTM/RTW code for their Free Anti-Virus Product – Microsoft Security Essentials.


As here on groovyPost, the reviews for Microsoft Security Essentials (Code-Name Morrow) have been very positive, and since installing it on my Windows 7 machine, I’ve had “0” issues.  All in all, I’m looking forward to the final release.


Update 10/5/09:


Here’s the email Microsoft sent out to all 75,000 Microsoft Security Essentials Beta Testers:
