    For those MSE fans ... Beta program! :)


    New Microsoft Security Essentials beta inbound - Neowin.net

    It looks like Microsoft is getting close to releasing a new version of Microsoft Security Essentials, as some Microsoft Connect participants are being invited to join a new Microsoft Security Essentials Public Beta program. Microsoft vaguely state that the newest MSE beta will have “the latest protection features”, and the beta program itself will “start soon” after you accept the invitation.
    Hmmm, Win8 8102 DP Defender additions?

    I got my invite. Heck, I gotta stay up on this stuff but, in the meantime, on Win8 8102 DP, I'll keep running Defender.

    On Win7, I'll stay with AVG ... for now ...

    I din't think it is restricted. If you have a live registration on connect, and are participating in the Essentials program, you can try here with your login

    No luck - "invite already used" - I participated in past MSE beta testing, got left out on this one.

    I think that will only work if you valid Live ID address has received an invitation. Worth a try though.

    OK. I'll read the small print carefully, first.
    Later. It states, clearly, that anyything received by invitation (That's this one!) is confidential for five years and not to be disclosed or reproduced to any third party.

    Not much later:
    By coincidence, after leaving this forum and returning to the desktop, I was greeted with an "Essentials" Beta update! I installed but cannot discern any differences in the interface, but I haven't yet checked any performance differences.
