Microsoft Security Essentials (AKA Morro) Available For Download

Windows only: We've been keeping you up to date on Morro, Microsoft's free anti-malware now officially known as Microsoft Security Essentials, since it first hit the rumor-mill. If you're eager to try it out, it's available for download now. The catch is, Microsoft is capping MSE downloads at 75,000, and not offering it outside the US -- though you might be able to pull off a few proxy-related tricks if you're keen.

    Except if your in Australia, when it won't let you download it, so not much point having it on LHA.

      i found it interesting, and it says right there:

      "The catch is, Microsoft is capping MSE downloads at 75,000, and not offering it outside the US — though you might be able to pull off a few proxy-related tricks if you’re keen."

      So useful, and it's not like they don't say it ain't available.

      I gave the download a try and seems to let me download from Australia. - I did log in using a Hotmail account which is setup with a US billing address though ;)

    I was able to download the file without any proxies using my, Australian, Microsoft Connect profile.

    Well not working for me (in Aus) and I've even tried some US proxies. Pity, wouldn't mind checking it out.

    Working fine here, also downloaded it via connect.
