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.

You are very welcome. What you have is all you will need plus common sense, which is the best security.

Richard thank you very much. One other question I am trying to put a picture in my profile but for some reason it will not load. Any suggestions. The size of the pic is 18.6 kb.

So I notice MSE v2 is released. I have v1.0.2498.0 installed, and when I press UPDATE only the definitions are renewed. I don't know whether to uninstal old one and instal v2.0.657. Thing is I've never had any problem with the old one, and if it ain't broke.... Anybody got any thoughts...
