Hello.... my name is Gia
I'm wondering if Microsoft security essentials is compatible with my new Toshiba?

LKT :

Hello

LKT :

What OS does your new Toshiba use? If it is Windows 8, it will not be compatible. Windows Defender has taken its place in Windows 8.

LKT :

Let me know if this helps you, or if you have any further questions.

will microsoft security essentials work on this toshiba?

LKT :

No, that will not work. In the newer version of Windows, "Windows Defender" has replaced "Micrsoft Security Essentials(MSE)" SO everything that MSE did, you can expect "Windows Defender" to do.
