An Update to Microsoft Security Essentials

There is a  software update available for Microsoft Security Essentials. I believe it’s available through windows update, but I think it’s also available through the program itself.

Unfortunately it is not an automated update, you have to do it yourself…

If you look at your system tray (the area down by the clock), you will see a castle icon that will either be green with a checkmark, or yellowish-orange with an explanation point on it.


if you click on the icon and select “open” , then click on the “update” tab, you will be taken here…


If you then click on the “update” button…I believe you should then be prompted to update the software version currently on your computer…Follow all default installation steps and things should update properly.
