If windows essential security + wins firewall good enough protection or do I need a 3rd party anti virus installed in my laptop. Cheers.

Which OS? But I don't rate MSE at all. You would be much better with another free anti-virus.

Me neither i wouldn't depend on MSE at all

Cheers. Its just that I have to uninstall MSE before installing AVG Internet security. Will do that.

If you are on W8, you do not need to uninstall MSE - it turns off automatically if you install third party AV.

Had to uninstall MSE because it kept blocking 3rd party AV from installing. Any have always used AVG w/o probs so will stick with it.

Just be aware that Malwarebytes is not anti virus
