Please can I have your opinions of Microsoft Security Essentials as I want to install another AV because I have Bullguard but things have happened and I don't trust it anymore, any help much appreciated.

As it is from microsoft I would imagine it gets all of the latest problems fixed.
I use it myself but still not sure.
best thing to do is give it a try. A lot folk like it so worth a shot.

they all appear to work but some find different things to others. It is not normally wise to have more than one antivirus prog running at the same time.

Like all software,it can behave differently on different PC's. I personally had a lot of problems with it. Others sing its praises. So give it a try,if you don't like it for whatever reason.Get rid of it and try another.
As howard64 says 2 anti virus is a no no.
