Hi there, since MS started shipping Windows Defender in Vista as a comprehensive security measure to deal with malware. I guess Windows 8 will come with MSE.

What do you think?

I doubt it. The EU will probably complain about it to much. Do not think Microsoft wants to go through that again.

I'm going to guess not. Too many people use third-party programs like Norton. You know those guys, they swear by the program they payed for and won't consider changing. Until people open up to using free alternatives, Microsoft would be adding another step for them. First they would need to remove MSE, then install the other.

I think during the setup/installation phase of Windows they should allow you to install/not install Windows programs (such as IE, MSE, WLMessenger, WLMail, etc).

I barely trust Microsoft's security programs, dunno why but I think XP's Windows Firewall kinda set me off....

I can't speak for XP, but I know MSE is very trustworthy. I use it as my only AV, and it has never let me down.

I know others feel the same way. Give MSE a try! After all, it's free?

The comment about the EU is right on target. The EU is very consumer conscious and i doubt that MS would like to take them on again. My guess would be that the trend goes towards more configurability a la Windows Live Essentials. The odd thing here is that you can make a selection during the uninstall, but not during the install. That is logic backwards.

Nice thought there but wouldn't it have to be a Live product? Would be rather odd to have all Live products in the suite and then MSE, which would stick out a lot.

Even though MS naming conventions can get a little skewif at times, it will stay as MSE simply because it will be an established cross platform A/V.

Changing the name of a 'brand' they are trying to establish will be counter productive.

I wasn't saying they 'should' change the name. I was saying that it wouldn't fit in, in the Live Suite unless it was something like Live Security Essentials.

im also leaning toward a no with this. MS would only end up in anti trust court again. it's likely there will be a download link included like they do with windows live services but im sure that would be the extent of it.

It's kinda funny that we live in a world where a company could be sued for trying to include in their product the material to keep it protected.
