Hey guys I've installed MSE BETA last night after one nightmare of a time, I made sure to create a system restore point before this, it uninstalled the standard MSE but failed to install the BETA so I had to use the Windows Install Cleanup tool: Download Windows Installer CleanUp Utility 188.8.131.52 Free - Remove Windows Installer configuration information on failed installs - Softpedia to remove the Antimalware element of MSE that doesn't show up in Add/Remove programs.
So after a restart of the computer, I try again and it installed fine.
Today I noticed something that concerns me- Windows Update: When checking for updates before, MSE definitions came up as "Optional" all the time which I thought might have been Microsoft being geniuses and thinking that if they make it optional- a virus or malware won't be bothered with it but, the BETA shows definition updates as Important and this was the same when I was using Windows Defender. So I'm not sure if this is normal or not.
Also, as amazed as I was by this compared to the standard MSE, the BETA's quick scan takes 30 seconds, which I've only been use to when Windows is freshly installed. The computer is much faster as well, I guess my question is more of wondering if there are any problems with the BETA and if anyone has had any problems that forced them to uninstall it and reinstall the standard MSE.
I personally am pretty concerned that the quick scan takes 30 seconds and scans 37425 objects in that time and the computer being faster even with MSE Beta having much more to do what with Firewall and Internet Explorer integration and network monitoring while in the meantime scanning every little thing we do on a computer.
