I've been running bitcoin with microsoft security essentials for a long while now, and it has always been able to get blocks.  Port forwarding on my router was simple, it supports UPnP, which I like using.  I discovered that running bitcoin caused MSSE to grind away at the hard drive excessively, so I added the bitcoin data directory to the exceptions list, and it calmed down right away.  I just now added the bitcoin application to the excluded processes list, just in case that might become a problem some day.  I'm running the newest version of Bitcoin, so, maybe that's why it didn't have trouble getting blocks, I dunno.

Mine gets blocks as well albeit pretty slow. I am going to try the exclusion and see if that helps speed it up.

Is this still a problem with the current version?

As far as I know they fixed this one. I've had no trouble with MSSE in regards to the troubles listed in this thread.
