  • Forum Reply: RE: Support for Microsoft Security Essentials Ending 04/08/2014

    I have upgraded our 6 PCs from XPPro to Win7Pro, and the process is pretty straightforward. (Yes, it requires a clean install, so backup everything.) Microsoft Security Essentials runs fine on Win7, with no noticeable performance issues.
