Does it really matter to have banners under your avatar to show the people you are skilled or so? Or it's just a mater of fashion? There is no need to have banners or other stuff to show people that you are skilled and helpful.

Hey guys. Do you all think Microsoft Morro is enough. It's the only security product I left on my computer after I uninstalled all my others. I use Windows Firewall and it. Microsoft Windows Defender is turned off. Safe enough? Or should I get another product? Recommend me a free product please.

@pestbest: We can't be sure if Morro is good enough to detect viruses, but if you don't visit srange sites every day using IE, i guess you are ok.

I think WSE1.0 is just as good as Live OneCare, I use Windows Firewall with both Inbound/Outbound blocked through advanced settings and I like to use www.playlist.com for my music and discovered trojans in multiple songs that don't play. Blocked and removed both when other AV programs or Defender didn't find anything for that matter.

It seems safe enough, I went to a very questionable site (I wasn't attempting to test it but yeah..) and it detected a Trojan, asked if I wished to remove it, I said yes and it successfully removed it.

Its light-weight, that's the thing that is making me keep it the most.

I think Microsoft should adjust the taskbar icon when it's running, the bright white/blue castle is kinda awkward and reminds me of Windows 98SE . They should just make minor improvements to the Defender icon and be done with that

Probably no less safe than any other product. Microsoft's reputation blah blah

I'm running it with one of the highest rated -Eset-NOD. Not free but runs in tandem very well and running till we see some reliability reports on MSE. 30 day free trial.

Or Fully free and very good - pretty much a favorite with many people here is Avast. Don't know how it sits with MSE. I'd be running it if I wasn't trying MSE.
