    Microsoft decided to skip version 3.0 and launch version 4. What’s new in terms of important features is not known.

    Change log is still a mystery in this version. They always keep it that way.

    One noticeable change is automatic handling of detected severe and high alert level threats. Users no longer need to click `clean' every time a threat is detected. For medium and low level threats it still informs user before removing. For those needing more control over actions remove the tick from apply recommended actions under default actions. I personally enabled quarantine option for medium and low risk threats as I am confident as MSE has lowest FP rates (and I am not using any google product at this time:p)

    A noob question?

    could this be installed on XP.
    would it install even if XP is not able to do WGA check (it keeps failing with the reason that MS cannot verify it now. Tried manual methods but no luck so far.)

    Thanks,
    Grr

    I've not looked at MSE since ages ago. Maybe I''ll do a quick read-up on this on the web.
