New virus protection

Microsoft's new Security Essentials jumped onto my baby computer today, and it will be protecting my new laptop too (once it arrives).

It's a new free virus protection program that was just released. One of my colleagues told me about it during the very short and quickly closed beta program, and I planned on grabbing a copy as soon as it was available. It's a much lighter weight solution than the commercially available programs yet it has the protection that I need. Free is always good! And yes, it does include updates. The catch? You need to be running a legal copy of Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

My Mini is happy with its gift.
