Microsoft made the beta version of Microsoft Security Essentials—code-named Morro—available for download June 23 for the first 75,000 visitors who want it at http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials Focused solely on security, this free successor to Microsoft Windows Live OneCare does not include some of the non-security features users remember from OneCare. What Security Essentials does have is anti-malware capabilities including rootkit removal and detection. Though not aimed at competing with more comprehensive offerings from companies such as McAfee and Symantec, Microsoft officials have stated that the product will help extend basic protections to users without security suites. So without further ado, eWEEK offers a quick look at Morro, Microsoft's latest play in the security space. By Brian Prince
