Microsoft Security Essentials Beta Update

An update to the Beta Microsoft Security Essentials software was released. The current version is 1.0.1500.0, identified as "Microsoft Security Essentials Product version update package - KB972958". At the time of this posting, there are no results in a search for KB 972958.

The most noticeable change in the version update is the updated tray icon showing a check mark on a green background when the settings indicate that the computer status is "Protected". Turning off, for example, the real-time protection results in the icon turning red with an X and the message that the Computer is "At risk".

Reported Accessibility Improvements: "Tab and Crtl+Tab functions cycle focus from the tab (labeled as a button), though all of the controls on that page then back up to the tab. Left and Right Arrows navigate between the tabs."

Because Microsoft Security Essentials is still in Beta, it is expected that any other changes were bug fixes.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
