My personal experience with Microsoft Windows Security Essentials
This is a great free security program made by Microsoft. I been using it on a laptop. It is only 4.7 MB to download, simple to use, easy to update and has a lot of settings for more advance users. There is also a handy scheduling feature. What I don’t like is that MS did not make scan removable devices like USB drives automatically by default. The quick scan is very fast.

You need a Genuine (non-boot leg copy) of Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3); Windows Vista (Gold, Service Pack 1, or Service Pack 2); Windows 7 more info about System requirements for SE is available at Microsoft Security Essentials’ System requirements site.
I also recommend running Immunet along side with Security Essentials for double the protection.
