Microsoft Security Essentials Sucks

I have ten systems at work running MSE in the hands of average people, as well as my own at home, with no infections. ESET NOD32 not mentioned? I'd say if there's a feature to look for, behavioral detection has potential. If you are looking for the best protection out there then MSE is not it. Source

The tests were done on Windows XP machines and used current real-world malware threats to measure the effectiveness of some of the most popular antivirus programs. http://www.securitygem.com/should-i-trust-microsoft-security-essentials/ Some are even running Internet Explorer 6 which is just crazy because Internet Explorer 8 is much better and more secure. #8 nemesismk2, Sep 14, 2012 wirednuts Diamond Member Joined: Stay logged in MajorGeeks.Com Support Forums Home Forums > ----------= PC, Desktop and Laptop Support =------ > Software > MajorGeeks.Com Menu MajorGeeks.Com \ All In One Tweaks \ Android \ Anti-Malware Are there any Win 7 exclusive virus's?Click to expand...

But as you probably can guess, the antivirus software is just a third-string player in my security gameplan. this contact form We developed this new telemetry to look for emerging threats - sort of an early notification system that new threats were emerging. I'll edit this comment with my ESET results, BTW. I've had MSE report my system clean while adware pops ads above its own report.

I think they could get it running better with some work and it would be a pretty nice AV but it uses too much cpu. Runs super smooth and so far no infections, although I'm a smart surfer! permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]Ren13B -5 points-4 points-3 points 1 year ago(3 children)Releasing an update almost daily is just too slow in a lot of situations. have a peek here As of May 1, an ISP/EDU email is NO longer required to access the Classifieds.

Free Antivirus FTW!

IIRR (and I could be very wrong about this, at this point) it costs me right around $100 for four licenses every three years. See our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. In a reversal of its previous poor showing in the first two tests, Microsoft's Security Essentials actually gained a perfect score of 100 by allowing every legitimate program to be installed Ahh, well that sucks, I dont want to pay for anti virus Click to expand...

You need sound protection for you PC and every PC in your home, but is a Free AV solution like MSE sufficient?
