I recently installed Windows 8. Microsoft Security Essentials is not working in Windows 8. What can i do to install it correctly?
Press the Windows key, type Windows Defender, and press Enter. Windows Defender will open -- you'll see that it looks exactly the same as MSE. That's because Microsoft bundled MSE in Windows 8, naming it Windows Defender.
Basically, MSE comes preinstalled with all Windows 8 systems. It's just been renamed.
Microsoft has integrated defender in windows 8 so i suggest stick to that if you are satisfied
Microsoft bundled it with Windows Defender. It is great.
windows 8 and brings the same integrated antivirus Microsoft Security Essentials no need to urge
You reinstall OS and download MSE install again.
Another case of Microsoft confusing users by renaming upgraded MSE with that used previously in XP and 7 for a crummy anti-malware app.
This is not necessary. win8 includes an updated Windows Defender. this is an updated version of MSE.
U dont have to install it its built in with windows 8 in windows defender
Microsoft security essentials is built into windows 8 but it got renamed to Windows defender so there is no reason to install it.
windows 8 comes inbuilt with microsoft Security Essentials only its name has been changed to windows defender so u dont need to install mse.
When u buy Windows 8 , MSE is installed in it , u dont need to download it
But here's the download link http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=5201
You dont need to install it already comes with win 8, its renamed to windows defender.
Integrated anti-malware/Windows Defender
Windows 8 will include a full anti-malware solution, as Windows Defender will now incorporate the antivirus features from the Microsoft Security Essentials solution. This version of Windows Defender will also have improved performance and a smaller memory/CPU footprint.
MSE does not run on Windows 8, underscoring the fact that the new Defender and MSE are also functionally quite similar. Until Windows 8, Windows Defender protected against spyware only. Now, it also takes on viruses and other breeds of malware.
Microsoft has said that Defender on Windows 8 provides an acceptable minimum level of protection, and that it will disable itself automatically if another antivirus suite is installed (such as a Norton , McAfee, or Kaspersky suite, for example).
Windows Defender is Windows 8 built in anti-virus but if I were you I would opt out for something better like Avast Free or something. If you have amassed enough points there's BitDefender available in the Rewards section on this site.
Windows 8 has its own antivirus solution called windows defender which has MSE and other microsoft security solutions packed together . just go on and enable it.
If you are using another antivirus then windows defender will be turned off.
Windows Defender is called MSE....
Go search and type windows defender and can see the protection status...
See this link ....
why i not use this antivirus
Microsoft apparently bundled the features of MSE into Windows Defender in Windows 8 and they don't suggest that you install MSE on Windows 8 since it won't work.
can i use microsoft security essential in window 7
