Hi,
You mean MSE
Mostly because it sucks,
I wouldn't use Mse without mbam pro/ premium.
Most threats today are malware which mse does not know what the hell that is,
Most Antivirus suite don't.

I also use Emsisoft Anti-Malware Premium -- like MBAMpremium, it is quite thorough.

Now days paying for an Antivirus serves no real purpose,
Dedicated malware protection is well worth the expenditure

Guys, avoid mixing products & purposes Anti-Spyware/Malware and Anti-Virus are not the same thing. Although many security programs are becoming Swiss Army Knives again, let's remember:
-- if we want Anti-Virus, MBAM, EAM, Spybot, SpywareBlaster, SUPERAntiMalware programs are not it
-- if we want Anti-Spy/Mal-ware, Avast, Avira, AVG anti-virus programs are not it
Avast, Avira, AVG, Spybot2, Comodo, and several others are selling Swiss Army Knives [ie Internet Security suites]; please make sure what your are getting for free or fee is what you need, is aimed at the right target[s].

Yes, the thread was started a long time ago but people are always adding more info to it about AV's.

Yep always good to read backwards in that case for the most recent entries

A nice post it is.
---------------------------------------------
For an user having standard human intelligence about online risks, MSE as real time protection and MBAM freeware as a scanner is enough.

Spywares are never of attacking nature, they are invited by the attacked user. If one can stay away from inviting a spyware, special protection is not needed.

But if they want to play online rummy, search for porn, download torrents, and follow all links supplied by unknown facebook friends, they may need to spend some money on security suits. And I call them irrational computer users.

I don't see anyone doing any such thing :/
Except you posting about different products on different machines ?
Stick with one machine.
