- The app no longer works on Windows XP

If you’re in the market looking for a powerful anti-virus app, you should know that Microsoft has just rolled out a brand new preview version of Security Essentials.

As you might have heard, Microsoft Security Essentials is often considered to be just the baselines of all security test performed by institutes across the globe, so it might not offer the protection you actually hope to get.

Microsoft Security Essentials 4.6.205.0 Pre-Release is obviously just a preview version of the next stable build of the application, so although it’s supposed to work quite like a charm on newer Windows operating systems, it shouldn’t be installed on production machines.

Windows XP is no longer supported, so in case you’re thinking to install it on a computer still running the 13-year-old operating system, you won’t be able to do that. Instead, you need Windows Vista or Windows 7 to run this new version. Windows 8 comes with its own security app called Windows Defender, also based on Security Essentials, which is installed and turned on by default.

Overall, this new version surely comes in handy to many users who are trying to protect their computers with a free anti-virus app, so download Microsoft Security Essentials 4.6.205.0 Pre-Release to see what it brings new.
