Yes it is. I'm assuming that's why MSE has been a system choker for me. I tried three different times and finally gave in to the fact that it was because of what you mention. Symptoms, one hundred percent cpu while desktop is loading and lasting for about 7 plus minutes. Opening folders with more than a few apps/icons equals one hundred percent cpu whilst the icons take a long, long time to render. Updates coming in at two per week which may be normal for MSE, don't know for sure on that one. I hate that it wouldn't work for me because for those I recomended it to and can use it, it seems to be a great security product.

A trojan and a browser highjacker that I caught within one week. Fortunately I do daily imaging. So it was not a big deal to recover. But makes you feel kind of uncomfortable. And I also noticed that it never finds any tracking cookies. Not a big deal, but I think it should find them.

OK, I read that but took it the other way around. I thought you were saying MSE caught the baddies.
