    Not much has changed from a performance or detection perspective. This is a release focussed on prepping the MSE user base for smoother upgrades to new versions of MSE.

    Yup, noticed the build number only increased by 2, so don't expect much.

    Multiple people in the Microsoft Connect newsgroup for the MSE beta have reported that this build has faster full scans.:thumb:

    All Microsoft software is generally continually developed upon. Soon is a vague term.

    I still do not understand why one would "fool" around in the registry instead of runing "MpCmdRun.exe -SignatureUpdate" from the Windows task scheduler...

    Maybe somone could enlighten me ?

    Well the registry edit works great (ALWAYS get the updates now) for me and I have read of other ways that have had problems and would not update sometimes. Maybe your way is another great way haven't tried because registry edit works great! :D

    Read more here about other ways and problems with them: http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/r23234204-Microsoft-Security-Essentials-MSE-does-not-update

    Yes using Malwarebytes real time. See my signature below been using all those for over 5 months on Windows XP SP3. No problems here just need to exclude Malwarebytes in MSE.

    Here's what to exclude:

    also look here for more help: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=10138&st=0&p=181018&#entry181018

    For Windows XP:

    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

    For Windows Vista or Windows 7:

    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
    C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

    For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
    C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
    C:\Windows\SysWoW64\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

    Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you might need to exclude MBAM.EXE from it as well.

    I care about its speed of dealing with a virus more.Before it sometimes required half a hour,I don't know whether it's faster or not now?

    Ballmer specifically asked the MSE team to make it throw chairs at the virus before deleting it.

    Since installing this upgrade, I have had problems with updates - it will not update on the 1st try - but usually does the 2nd time. I have contacted MS support - got two replies, both which did NOT work. For now, it seems that a manual update is required (twice, one which fails and one which is successful). If they don't acknowledge the problem and find a fix soon, I am considering Avast 5.0. Anyone else experiencing the update problem?

    Have you tried the registry fix linked in post #10? You could also try and uninstall, reboot, reinstall.

    Have you tried leaving it alone and not fidgeting with manual updates?

    I have tried uninstalling, reinstalling, everything MS Support has suggested with no success. As far as fidgeting with manual updates, it happens on automatic updates, also. See how many others are experiencing the same thing since June 29 upgrade in this link:

    Try the following:
    1. stop the windows update service
    2. delete the folder c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution\
    3. try to update again.
