Just seeking people's opinions on Microsoft Security Essentials, and whether this product is as good as Microsoft claims?.
Previously on all the computer's I have used, it as always been the case of using product's like Avast or SuperAntiSpyware as a defence from possible outside upsets.
Microsoft firewall's have not always had a top slot, perhaps like other product's. ZoneAlarm being perhaps one of the higher recommendations in the past. Does Microsoft use a firewall in Microsoft Essentials, and if so, what is the opinion on that?.
No question about it for me-MSE is well up with the best of the free offers and most of the purchased software too. I have used it for two years now with secondary back up programmes like Malwarebytes , Spybot and Rapport. AVG is good but slow on scans. I take the view that getting PC security right would be something that Microsoft consider essential and that they cannot afford to fall behind on.
I suspect that, as I read it is now the second most popular security software in use worldwide, it must be doing something right!
