Windows 7: Recommend a good free internet security program please

MSE.
I was happy to discover it. I think its great that MS provided some 1st party app that is above and beyond retail box, for free. First used it with W7 box. Started to look for XP box's and bingo, its available now. Grabbed it right up.
Used to pay for 3rd party app, Trend Micro. Worked great at first but by 2007 version, nothing but trouble.

MSE is not perfect, but common sense must also play some part.

you can add my name to the list for MSE recommendations.. I use it in xp machines and for people who are likely to screw up their system if I were to install Comodo..besides, if you get a virus after you install MSE, you get to blame Microsoft for it.
