I sugest you Avira as a free antivirus and kaspersky or avast as a paid one you choose.
And never use 2 antiviruses in the same time.
I bet there would be a lot of Users who would disagree with that statment including me
And me. Its been a great experience so far.
The "It's free so it can't be good" argument is absolutely not valid, at least in MSE's case.
Why don't you try the EICAR test?
If every time you create a file containing the test string (create a text file, paste the string and try to save it as "EICAR.COM" (quotes must be included, as otherwise notepad will save it as EICAR.COM.txt), you will get an Access Denied message from MSE, if RT protection is running fine.
If this does not work, maybe try uninstalling and re-installing MSE?
Download the EICAR test file from here
. Multiple versions are available. If you choose to download the COM (either as such or in the zipped file) version, MSE should not let you do so at all.
If you choose the text file version, scroll down the document till you get to the test string, select it and copy it to a new empty text document, and try to save it as mentioned above.
Let us know how this goes.
