Microsoft tries again with a new antivirus software

Who has Microsoft Defender but thinks it’s a waste of space and memory resource? Apparently, a lot of people did and as a result, Microsoft discontinued the program last year as it prepares for its replacement.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a free antivirus as Microsoft takes another stab at the antivirus industry. It’s available now although in the beta stage still.

Unfortunately, it reached the maximum 75,000 beta testers and it’s not accepting downloads at the moment. So if you’re interested in giving it a go, better check back at a later time.

No worries, I probably wouldn’t use an antivirus created by Microsoft anyway. Why not make Windows less vulnerable to virus in the first place instead of creating an antivirus?
