Microsoft Security Essentials is a free antivirus program that protects computer devices from malware, virus, spyware and other harmful programs. This antivirus provides thorough and real-time protection from programs that pose great danger to the system. One of the most noticeable features is the system scanning. Microsoft Security Essentials provides an in-depth and thorough system scanning that can be done manually or automatically. This gives an extra level of security as well as a keen eye on anything that could potentially harm the system. The full scan is very helpful because it does full scan of the system and registry and all running programs. It becomes easier to pin point any issues.

The real-time protection feature is interesting in the sense that it addresses possible threats even before they escalate to actual problems. The constant alerts notify users when there are malware, spyware and other malevolent software. Microsoft Security Essentials prevents such programs from opening. When a threat is detected, there must be a way to deal with it. This is why Microsoft Security Essentials determines possible threats and notifies the user of the threats. The threats are grouped as severe, high, medium or low. Users can delete, quarantine or allow items into the system.

Microsoft Security Essentials features a windows firewall for extra security. This feature is especially helpful for online shoppers and those that transact business on the internet frequently. Users can scan their PC to find out is the firewall is active and that the protection is up to date. Dynamic signature service is perhaps the most sophisticated feature. Microsoft Security Essentials pretends to run a potentially harmful or suspicious program. This is like a tricking mechanism that this antivirus uses to see what the program in question will do. This great security feature enables a user’s computer stay protected. It also helps users know the safe and harmful software.
