 The app, previously code-named Morro, replaces Windows Live OneCare and fights the usual rogues' gallery of PC threats, including worms, Trojans, and other troublemakers.

Security Essentials runs on Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (beta or release candidate), and does pretty much what any good anti-malware app should do. It automatically downloads virus and spyware definitions; offers real-time protection that scans downloads and attachments, and looks for suspicious file and program activity; and runs unattended scans at a time that works best for you
