    MS security essentials has 3 updates per day, they average over 1 mb for
    each update my hd is 320 gb , I'm going to need a huge HD, that seems
    excessive ??

    No, they are not cumulative in that sense, I believe it sorts itself out
    adding only what is needed.
    I think it checks every 24 hrs and/or after boot and only fetches the
    latest issue anyway and then updates with whatever is new.
    My guess would be that the stored definitions will increase at the same
    rate as current threats.
