Also, fwiw, the tech I take my computer too thinks highly of Microsoft Security Essentials, and my understanding is its updates will have prevented the wannacry.

I already have and had Microsoft Security Essentials which I agree (have also been told its the best) besides being free and I have active on my computer with its autoupdates.

I great bonus is that the updates of MSE create restore points which can come in very handy.

The reports I read did not make it clear that MSE would protect against the wannacry.

What I haven't read is when did NSA know of the vulnerability? has it been many years? Did NSA actually create the vulnerability - that is see the weakness in the Server Client and create the exploit code?

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
