I want to run the free check on my new PC but can't find it. Does anyone know where it is please?

I wouldn't bother - if it's anything like Norton Personal Firewall it won't work anyway!

It's a new Microsoft service.
It gives a free scan
It not only checks security, but your whole system,
including whether or not you need a de frag.

It takes a while to run, but I found it well worth while.

I agree with fingees. I have been having virus problems which I could not remove. Having seen this posting I have just tried it and it found 2 viruses and 14 infected files. It removed the viruses and cleaned the files. And its free.

Further to my above post I have just rerun the scan and, having found viruses and infected files the 1st time and removed them, this time it shows no viruses found. It appears to be reliable but time will tell.
