Security Essentials/Windows Defender & CCleaner Free

Post by John Clees » Wed Jul 17, 2013 7:40 am

Microsoft Security Essentials : free with real copy of windows

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... s-download

I've have 3 computers with legit copies of windows on all of them. Im not sure when this became available, I've never got it on any of my computers until now, but just this past week i've put it on two out of the three. I think it may have been in a recent update just this week or so and/or it just became more apparent as of right now. im sure some may be aware of this program that window's offers completely free, however I wanted to share for those that didn't.

this sh!t rocks! I've have a paid copy of maleware bytes, and after running one scan of the Microsoft Security Essentials it found 3 trojan horse viruses. my internet computer is running smoother than it has in at least 6 months.

free direct from windows site, link above, thought i'd share..

just tried to get a set from http://uploaded.net and it found a maleware/hack/virus, and quarantined it..

bumping this thread for those that may have missed..

it's a must have for all pc users.

ps / edit :
when you're done, do search for Microsoft Security Essentials, (right click) on the program icon, and "send to desktop". that way you can also do updates and scans slightly easier than having it hidden/buried in the icon tray by your clock. ( lower right hand side )

I thought I'd bump this once again for those that missed and also share another great free tool for PC's.

this is the 2nd most important free program ( I've used for at least 2-3 years) that I've come across for Pc's would be ...

CCleaner

for PC use : direct link : https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

Process :
1. click green [free download] gree button
2. click - [free download] also in green
3. click - [download] also green - first one on the left.

cleans up old internet files and junk stuck/caught in your machine. many have come and gone but this is stable, efficient, cleans an unbelievable amount of stuff off your machine, is completely free, and has absolutely become a trusted brand to me over the years...

* (Also) amazing for android phones as well.
just removed an avg cleaner and went back to this...
do a search at the google store.
super clean & light.

thought I'd share...
