    Is this genuine?

    I recently installed a client update for MSE today, and when I opened it up out of interest, I saw quite a noticeable difference:



    The background was changed, and now the software calls your computer a PC, and a new system to report malware to Microsoft called MAPS.

    I just need to clarify whether this is legit or bogus. Anyone else got this?

    Hello Peter,

    Other than you having MSE maximized, it looks just like mine does.

    version: 4.0.1526.0

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
