After doing a lot of reading about MS Security Essentials I have made a decision to test my Windows 7 HD and have removed all Virus Software and installed MS Security Essentials. IE8 is showing Protected Mode is ON as well as Popup Blocker.
MS Windows 7 Firewall is up and I have UAC set to the default level.
Defender is gone, MSE shuts that down during install.
So far I have found that I have reduced memory usage about 30 Meg.
My Re-bootup time has dreceased from 63 sec to 54 seconds.
Does anyone else have your system setup this way?
Have I missed anything else?
Will keep you posted on how ell thing perform.
