Just wondering if anyone's running Microsoft Security Essentials and how this program rates.Am currently running PC Tools Spyware with Antivirus,a very good tool but is going to expire and I think it's too expensive.Also heard a lot of good things about AVG,but am interested mainly in the Microsoft.Any help about these two programs would be appreciated.

Dottech did some comprehensive comparison testing of the free suites out there. Avira is better than MSE on several fronts, but MSE is free and doesn't display advertisements like Avira does.
With that said I would stick with MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials). There is absolutely no reason for a home user to pay for Antivirus nowadays. And if you are in a corporate environment, absolutely steer clear of Norton, Mcafee, and Trend Micro.

I am running Security Essentials and I think there is no other better program. I run it on a daily basis and it catches everything, even real time. Its a good programm. And free ofcourse.
