Microsoft Security Essentials Build 2.0.522.0 via Windows Update

On Nov’9th, Microsoft began pushing out a “beta refresh” of Microsoft Security Essentials build 2.0.522.0 via Windows Update. It’s said to be the Release Candidate build, but Microsoft officials aren’t calling it that publicly.

Microsoft delivered the beta 2 of MSE in July 2010, and at that time, it was said the new version include “Windows Firewall integration” and more. Sorry! but no firewall feature is added to new build.
