    Still no way to disable useless and resource wasting real-time archive scanning.
    I'll try but probably pass it till they add this. It makes MSE useless for Atom based systems with slower HDD's like netbooks and nettops.

    Still takes forever to show icons with a folder full of exe files. Why isn't this fixed in V.2 :thumbd:

    Oh well, maybe in V.3, i'll stick with my red umbrella 'till this is fixed. I really like MSE, pity.

    I'm running MSE v1 on Win7/64. Tried upgrading to v2, but got error message. Uninstalled v1, ran fresh install of v2, got error message again....................

    An error prevented Security Essentials wizard from completing successfully.
    Error Code 0x80070643

    Any ideas what the heck is going on?

    "I want the product to have this, I want the product to have that, I want to be able to disable A when situation X occurs, it is useless because it does not do or have this and that..."

    Just my own personal reflection: perhaps it is time to remember who the product is aimed for, the majority of computer users who has little or no understanding of anti-malware apps and in general do not care about such things. They often want a simple, no fuzz leave it and forget app that handles malware. That is what MSE is all about, at least according to Microsoft Forums, and I believe it should be looked at from such an angle.
    There is a vast field of very good products out there in which users CAN go in-depth and change basically everything, it is therefore unfair to compare the functions of MSE with said products. MSE is in my opinion very good at doing what it is meant for, basic protection and let us not forget it, it is free to use.

    Regards,
    J

    has anyone confirmed that this is indeed final and not just a beta release? Microsoft definitely added some nice/much needed features as well. yet it's still simple to use. :) I put MSE version 1 on my girlfriend's laptop and she loves it. It automatically updates and scans and she can understand the interface easily.

    That is correct JoakimM, Microsoft aims at 95% of all users. Which is why MSE will eat market share like it was actually making a profit! ;) I think it is great they listened to complaints about being most stupid AV ever regarding activity. Like it was hard to ignore. Less annoying to hear so many declare it lightest and fastest ever, heh. Decent now.

    correct Joakim
    i agree with you with the fact that the target group for MSE is the type of people that have no idea of such things. So the rest should not use MSE if they know it will not meet their inquiries

    So if "scan archive files" under the settings tab is unchecked the archive files are scanned real time anyway? If so, is the settings tab just for on demand scans?

    thanks

    That particular setting applies to on demand scans only. Not the same for all other options.

    Well this is still my main complaint against MSE, apart from the red-at-boot thing. I have changed real time protection to check incoming files only and this has solved the archive/exe scanning issue though I understand its a compromise on security. What I don't get is that if they really want to keep this feature intact, then why do they not have a persistent caching mechanism in place?

    Are you using Win 7? I found a workaround for that which involved changing a service from delayed start to automatic. I think it was Security Center. It worked.

    Have a problem with the GUI. When I try to close the GUI, half of it remains behind. Can't use it.

    I can wait until the general release. It will probably be soon anyway. I just hope they maintain the quality & standard of the #1 series.
