What I like is the independent evaluation and comparison of various AV software. MS shows up as the best of the free av software and better than nearly all not-free av software.

arfer,
It's not a bug. I suggest you go to the site they recommend. Many people have purchased what they thought was a legal copy of Windows.

+1 for MSE. Been using it since it came out and zero problems so far.

Shawn,
You will probably find the comparative performance of Avast Home and MSE given in the article interesting.
