I remember it working fine back when I was using 32bit Windows XP.
I can't install it on my 64bit Windows 7 (Home Premium) PC!
It's a little over 2 years old, so it SHOULD install and run fine on anything except Windows 8! C'mon MicroSloth, get with it and put out a new version, already!!!

OK, my mistake in blaming Microsoft -- this is <b>CNET'S FAULT</b> for not offering the 64bit version; it's up on MS's website! <i>http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7558</i>
If you want to view of all the MBSA command line options, go to:
Only scans Microsoft software.
I don't know of any since I do not know if it is running.
The download can not be used. When I use it a blocking window comes up to say that it can not override the existing file, select a different file. I go to Microsoft and download the update.
works well finds a lot of security issues some that I don't care about for a home system but better to know about it and not need it.
no way to know how "good" it is but it seems to work
use it what could it hurt...
It accurately tells yoiu where you need to improve your security and how to achieve it.
Some of the help doesn't include "Windows 7" specific.
Overall the product is very good & simple to use with easy to understand help instructions.
In the world of technology today, safety on one's computer is very important and this program makes me feel safer about knowing my computer is properly protected.
There really isn't anything that i don't like about this program.
Provides detailed results and how to correct
Limited and cannot enter exceptions
Good standard check for basic compliance from Microsoft. Produces a report which can be edited to explain exceptions. Explanation of how to correct problems is exceptional.
As I'm digitally challenged I rely on strongly recommended downloads from sites I believe I can trust. I don't always see the effect of the download. However, some time after the download of MSFT BSA 2.1.1 I experienced several "Blue Screen" crashes. Using Cnet to review virus/firewall products I decided and bought both and the sftwr service to the tune of $90+. After install and run, it found a trojan, 5 critical somethings, and 3 registry alerts. Also it finds 5-10 tracking cookies every few days.
Therefore, I don't see the value of willy nilly downloads no matter how important they sound or trusted the site
Easy to use and very important
I have not found anything negative.
I like it because it is easy to use and it make sure that all my safeties are working
Works well, without slowing down your desktop. I feel that it's better than most that you pay a lot of money for.
It's not perfect, but I feel it's far better than those you pay $50 or more for, which slow down your system (to make you feel better).
It's fine to use. All of us need to learn proper safety use of our laptops, desktops, or anything else with access to the internet.
