Microsoft Security Essentials

Wow…was I ever fooled.  Their latest overhaul of MSE actually had me thinking maybe Microsoft finally did a good thing.  The interface is simple, the product is free, doesn\’t seem to have the drawbacks of Windows Defender, even gives AVG a run for its money on finding viruses and reacting to them, then the bomb dropped.  The idiots at Microsoft have it programmed to shut down completely if the computer hasn\’t been online after a predetermined time.  They punish you for not checking in with them by allowing viruses they know about invade your system just because they shut down MSE.  But what should I expect from a company that had entire teams clapping, patting themselves on the backs and believing the world would love a product like Windows Vista.
