Microsoft Security Essential Review
Microsoft Security Essential is the security product for your system from the house of Microsoft. Microsoft first ever launched his security products from its users. It is for scanning of different types of threats like worms, viruses, Trojans, Spyware and Adware etc.
To install and use the MS Security Essential, you must have genuine copy of Windows. When you download and install this security program, it will ask you to eliminate all other antivirus from your system. It comes with user friendly and dynamic user interface. UI has four tabs only i.e. Settings, Update, Home and History.
One thing which differentiates this security program from all other security programs is its color changing feature. The UI theme color changes vary time to time depending on the safety level. With green, yellow and red indicates complete protection, an active threat and risky activity on your system respectively.
It facilitates the users via Home tab, by determining whether virus and other security threats were up-to-date and real time protection was either ON or OFF. Furthermore you can choose quick scan, custom scan or full scan. After selection of relevant sort of scan, click on “Scan now” button, the scanning started.
During scanning process, a bar will appear where all progress regarding scanning process will appear. When any malicious content, file or infected document will be detected, it will be displayed in a pop-up box. The program will show the name of malicious agent, status, alert level and recommend any action if required.
Furthermore Microsoft Security Essential allows you to scheduled scanning. You can set any time of scanning, so if you are available or not, online or offline, the scanning process will be started at the scheduled time. You can set daily scan, weekly or monthly scan.
I personally found it a good product to secure your computer and mobile devices from any external attack. It also keeps your downloading and browsing safe and secure. It checks all the files and folder, point out infected files, remove the virus and restore file to its original position.
