    Microsoft is offering it's free anti-virus product, Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) to 75,000 lucky people today.

    The company is offering the product via a beta program and will likely extend the cap of 75,000 downloads depending on demand. MSE is Microsoft's free anti-virus and anti-spyware product that is set to replace Microsoft's paid Windows Live OneCare subscription service which is being withdrawn a week today.

    I installed it on my laptop running windows 7. Now whenever, I switch on my Laptop, it is showing that some virus has got into my system and asks me to clean it. This cleaning takes ages to complete and afterwards reboots. This has been going for at least 10-15 times within a short period of time. I request others to be wary of this software. Interestingly I have kasperky anti-virus with latest definitions installed on my laptop and it never showed any virus.
