New free stuff from Microsoft !

It’s antivirus, it’s free, it’s from Microsoft !!! Get it here http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ (but only if your Windows version is genuine !)

But…
Mashable.com says “Microsoft says that Security Essentials is designed to run quietly in the background (no constant UAC alerts) and that it doesn’t hog CPU or memory usage.”
And Microsoft.com says “Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want—without interruptions or long computer wait times.”

Then why do products like ESET/NOD32 and AVG (also free) only need around 50 to 70 MB of free hard disk space and this MS product no less than a whopping 140 MB !!!

Ah well, trying on some test machines tomorrow then.
