The Beta program is for the next major release of Security Essentials which will be released after the Beta program ends. If you want to get this version before everyone else, sign up for the beta today:

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=233172

 

The number of users that can participate in the Beta is limited, so sign up now to reserve your spot.

 

Thank you for using Security Essentials,

Welcome to the Microsoft Security Essentials Beta Program!

Thank you for participating in the Microsoft Security Essentials Beta program, which will start soon. We’ll notify you by email when it starts.

 

This is correct right?

I was one of the first beta testers for MSE when it first came out so i would like to test this also.
