If you would like to install, the whole process is painless.
First go to http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/ and press the Download Now button.
Once installed, there are 4 simple parts to the program.
Home: Gives you an overview of the status of your system.
The Update Tab: Give you the status of your latest definitions. If you are out-of-date, then it would indicate it here.
The History Tab, is a good place to check every once in a while to see if things have been going as planned.

I have installed Microsoft Security Essentials on all my Windows machines. No viruses have been found, but I did not expect to find any.
I have not experienced any performance problems either.
