MS Security Essentials Vs. AVG 9.0

Is anyone using both AVG 9.0 paid version and MS Security Essentials?

Has anyone dropped AVG paid version for MS Security Essentials?

Is MS Security Essential worth a try?

Is it better than AVG?

Thanks.

I dropped AVG 9 Free for MSE about 2 weeks ago.

No regrets yet. I like the fact that MSE has a simpler interface that seems to cover it all. Can't comment on AVG 9 paid and am not positive how it differs from free. The virus detection engine may be the same?

AVG 9.0[paid] has added features than its free version. MSE is light and who can't protect their product better than Microsoft?

I'm currently using KIS 2010 but I will give MSE a try.

Despite their flaws, I love MS.

Thanks to all who replied.

For the two "Both Sucks" responses, what are you using?
