Protect Your Computer: Microsoft Security Essentials

Microsoft touts it as "the anti-annoying, anti-expensive, anti-virus program" and we have to agree.  For small 

businesses (less than 10 PCs), Microsoft Security Essentials is our top anti-virus, anti-malware recommendation.  

The key benefits include:

  • It's free.
  • Simple to install.
  • It's free.
  • Easy to use.
  • It's free.
  • Runs efficiently on your computer without using a lot of memory.
  • It's free.
  • Virtually maintenance free - updates automatically download once per day, keeping your computer protected from the latest virus and malware threats.
