installed microsoft security essentials.is microsoft security essentials enough ?
Because it says that running any antivirus with microsoft security essentials may conflict with it?
You can run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware with it.

Let's get rid of your temporary files....
download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser and desktop!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

*** keep this convenient application and use!

Oops! I didn't realize there were more posts.

Personally I wouldn't rely only on MSE as my security, MS has even said it's not intended to be full protection. For $30-$40 USD per year you can get a good full featured security suite.

I'd personally agree with britton and Jacee because the basic four lines of security include:-

Firewall - Windows Firewall
User Account Control
Anti Virus Software - MSE/Any other good security software
Anti Malware - MBAM/Any other good antimalware software

Anyway browse the internet safely and be careful of rogues! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you!

Could you give us a web site where Microsoft states that Microsoft Security Essentials is not a full protection anti virus program?

MSE will not install if the Windows OS is NOT legit ... now that doesn't mean the OS is totally illegal, but if any new hardware, or an upgrade from a previous Windows installation with legit key hasn't been 'activated', then you will have to re-activate the OS by phone or online.

Gary we went through this a month or two ago.
Where somebody said somebody said that somebody said that Microsoft said this and that and that all it was.

They said that Holly Stewart was quoted buy never posted the quotes where Holly Stewart did say it. They would just send you to another site that said the Holly Stewart said this but never produced the quote from Holly.
Nobody to my knowledge ever found a quote from Holly Stewart stating Microsoft Security Essentials was inferior. It was just one of those somebody said Holly said and then to another site that they heard that Holly said this and that.

I know of no where Microsoft has ever stated that their security program was no good and recommend buying another protection product instead of using theirs. If that quote from Microsoft is out there I would like to see it.

As far as I can tell it's another somebody said that somebody said, that somebody said. All over again.

I think you should keep MalwareBytes AntiMalware with you if all else fails. SuperAnti Spyware is also a good option. I think keeping MalwareBytes running alongside kaspersky will provide a great security barrier and also keep you tension-free of new viruses and malware. Keep in mind that always update both the applications whenever new virus definitions are available.
