    I'm running MSE on Win8 Build 7955. I used compatibility settings to run the setup file.

    Once you turn on compatibility settings, it's genuine.

    Yes ! MSE, AVG and Avast work on build 7955, but not on 7850.

    I'm using Avast 6 with 7955

    I like the idea of MSE, just waiting for the download to finish
