Microsoft Security Essentials, try it before you let anyone else discourage you away from it.

Go for somthing better Avira.. Because MSE is belongs to Microsoft, its doent mean that it a great anti-virus.. there are awsome free anti-virus program's out there.. if you want overall good av go for avast.

if you use avira to get rid of advert nag screen (7 x64)
1.Start-> Control Panel
2.Administrative tools-> Local security policy
3.Click on Software Restriction Policy-> Action (at the top)-> create new restriction policies
4.Right-click additional rules (on the right side)-> new path rule
5.Click Browse and navigate to C:\Program Files(x86)\(Avira)\AntiVir personal\ and double-click avnotify.exe
6.Set the security level to Disallowed-> apply-> ok

removing avira splash screen on startup
1.Open regedit and navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\wow6432node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
2.In the right pane double-click avgnt and add /nosplash at the end of the path (ex. /min /nosplash)

No one said it was good because it was from Microsoft, I'm saying its good because it was developed that way.

Though thats my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.

LOL, I second that

And TBH, who wants to be messing with the registry and gpedit to get their AV to be quiet. (nice tips btw senthil)

MSE is a silent assassin.

I don't care who it was developed by, as long as it works. It does, its free, and its light-weight.

Care to continue this or have I made myself clear enough?
