Alright. You all make good points. I'm taking off Avast! then because it is only half free..... but Morro is all free.

Haha. I think I have been here for a while. I just never liked M$'s built in AV/Firewall. Now it seems to work.

I think since IE8 will be removed from EU release of 7, they thought to invest somewhere else, so they built Morro and now if it will be installed in the final release of win7 distribuited in europe, final users won't buy products like norton or mcafee.

Very possible. The good thing is that M$ did this one well. It is real light and probably fairly easy to remove (unlike Norton which is considered a Virus in itself. It has its own removal tool!).

I just finished installing MSE on fresh and clean system. I'm impressed by the performance of this new AV. It looks clean and simple, so far so good.

Thanks guys, thanks John.

I removed Avast to try out MSE and so far I'm impressed as well. I do have Threatfire running but since they work differently, I'm having no problem with this. I ran Threatfire with Avast for many months.

I run both MSE & Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware without an issue.
