    I had an update to the Microsoft Security Essentials this morning and I want
    to confirm the latest version.

    Thanks for your help.

    The version I have installed is:

    Microsoft Security Essentials Version: 1.0.1963.0

  2. General webpage about Security Essentials at Microsoft...
    http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

    The latest defnitions for Security Essentials:
    http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Definitions/ADL.aspx
    or
    http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Definitions/HowToMSE.aspx

    As for the MSE installation itself:
    http://clubhouse.microsoft.com/Public/Post/7bc1253e-b75c-48e3-93cd-c513ff2ea2fd
    which might direct you to:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975959

    And given the timeliness of your posting and information you have given
    (such as the version of MSE you are supposedly running) and comparing it to
    the information above - your versions match and unless one was released
    today - you cannot get any newer *right now*.

    All of the above was gleamed from Internet searching - I don't even run (nor
    do I normally recommend) Microsoft Security Essentials. I searched like
    this:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=what+is+the+latest+version+of+Microsoft+Security+Essentials

    And the 8th hit caught my eye pretty quickly while scanning over them -
    mostly because of the date combined with the title. Quickly scanning it led
    directly to the KB Article link.

    As for the rest of the posting - I just assumed the web page for such things
    would be the main Microsoft web page with the product name after it - no
    spaces of course and no need to repeat the name "microsoft" since it would
    be part of the main domain/web page address already. I did not put the
    underscore in the original web page address - it was done for me after
    typing (http://www.microsoft.com/securityessentials/ -->
    http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ .) Nothing too difficult or
    mysterious.
