WSE okay for XP?

Recommended Posts

I first thought the new Windows Security Essentials anti-virus program was only for Win7 and probably Vista.

After reading the posts on Marty's problem, I'm thinking it's okay for XP?

Thanks for anyone's time! nancy

I personally would not use it. AntiVir, Avast and even AVG are superior to WSE as far as catching and stopping malware. You cannot run it resident with another anti-virus program installed.

Rich, thanks so much for your guidance...am embarrassed that I did not check the resources tab.

You've taught me now.

Terrorist, thanks for your suggestion. The only reason I was considering it was that

I'm not going to be able to get to my Mother's computer (out of town and 87 yrs old)

before the Dec 1 when AVG is setting some sort of deadline to download their free version 9.

Didn't know if they were going to cut people off of the free program or not.

Maybe I can do the update after the 1st.
