Microsoft has developed and now testing a free anti-virus application for Windows. The name of this generous piece of software is “Microsoft Security Essentials”. Microsoft claims that this program was developed as a replacement for their subscription based anti-virus program known as “Live One Care” which was 49.95 per year.

*UPDATE: Microsoft’s link is closed at the present but Security Essentials can be downloaded via Softpedia.
