Microsoft released Microsoft Security Essentials, um anti-malware sem custos que protege o computer de vírus, spyware e other softwares maliciosos. Microsoft Security Essentials does not require any registration or payment.

“O Microsoft Security Essentials foi desenvolvido com feedback de clientes brasileiros e tivemos uma contribuição significativa no development do produto.
