I liked having one from each side of the globe.

I'm not against MSE. I still install it for those that I help. But, if you want to stick with MSE, see if you can stay awake thru this long rant of mine. It links to several other posts :-(

If you are looking for something free... I'm looking into Panda Cloud Antivirus, but it is a young product. See this post. It turns out that Panda Cloud AV was lowering the UAC to the default level when it found something - even a cookie. One the plus side, PCA blocks things like the Conduit toolbar. MSE let's you install that :-(
thanks I'll look into your suggestion :)
