I just noticed an icon down on the bottom of my taskbar for “Microsoft Securtiy Essentials”. It found something called HackTool:Win32/keygen , but didn’t delete it. (it describes this as a “Tool”, with “potentially undesirable behavior” , which I should “permit only if I trust the publisher”.
First, a simple question: what is “microsoft security essentials”?( I assume it’s been installed on my computer automattically with Windows, and I just never noticed) – is it a good antivirus?
Second, what should I do with the “keygen” thingy–tell the security essential program to clean it?
I work in a small company with 6 employees . I have a PC running Windows7 , the other 5 computers use XP. We are connected with a router. Nobody is a computer geek–we call a technician when we need to. I’ve never bothered to ask what antivirus we have .
