Microsoft Security Essentials???

Please advise. I am running Microsoft Security Essentials and that is all. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Should I be running any thing else such as a maleware program?? If so which one do you recommend and how do you install. Thanks again for all your help and cooperation.
Sincerely,
Rottikid

You should use malwarebytes
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes

Make sure that your Windows Firewall is activated.

If you are not happy with the Windows Firewall (activate from control panel) let us know and we will suggest others.

I agree. Malwarebytes is all you need alongwith MSE. If you use the free version, be sure to update and scan regularly with it.

I would get SuperAntiSpyware to run alongside MSE.
