Microsoft® Security Essentials Upgrade
The MSE is the latest in the long line up of security applications by Microsoft®. The program is designed for and aimed at providing cross-version security for various new and old Microsoft Windows® editions. MSE is a replacement of the once highly regarded Windows Live OneCare. Essentially, the MSE is a stripped down OneCare. The MSE has been in the Beta stage for a long duration and is now being followed up by an upgrade to move to the next logical step.

If you are running a beta version of Microsoft® Security Essentials, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version being offered by Microsof®t. MSE has already undergone some serious upgrades ever since its introduction. The program is available for the user of Microsoft Windows® but was not truly cross functional in its nature when running on different editions of Windows®. The new MSE upgrades make this possible.
Moving to the latest MSE upgrades now will help you to ensure a smoother and more continuous protection against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. New MSE upgrades enhance the Microsoft® Security Essentials’ ability to detect and block malware. Also, they improve the updating process through Windows® Live update and integrate it more tightly with the OS and there is also a few bug fixes regarding the digital signature services for the MSE.
There are a few common issues reported during the upgrade process for FSE. We will take a look at these now. The first one being that your Internet connection is not recognized. To resolve this you need to remove all other real-time antimalware products from your computer and also remove any scanners that come with a browser or a flash upgrade. You should also check that your PC clock is set to the correct date and that the PC is up-to-date on all fixes, patches and service packs. This should take care of the problems for you.
If you notice that the automatic upgrades feature is not working or just stops abruptly, then you would need to download manual updates for MSE.
Another small problem maybe that the Windows® firewall security sensitivity is set to a very high value. This would prevent all upgrades. Make sure that the firewall is set to defaults and all security levels of Internet Explorer® are also set to defaults. If the problem still persists, please get in touch with qualified technical support professionals.
