MSE ?

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/?mkt=en-us

look under support, Help and how to, there is some info there
also under How to videos.

MSE has very good detection without false detection (positives),
it has performed very well in all antivirus-tests since it was released a year ago.
it doesnīt slowdown your computer.
it also works well together with other antivirus-programs,
especially with Avast, since Avast was designed to be able to run together with MSE.

iīm running MSE v2-beta myself, together with Emsisoft Anti-Malware.

One question: Do you turn off Windows Defender or do u leave it on. I never use Windows Defender.
MSE will disable defender when you install
MSE will disable the current Windows Defender because MSE includes Windows Defender plus an Anti-virus program.

OH YES !
MSE is an antivirusprogram.
Avast has some "extra" protection, like fx. a mail-scanner, thatīs the reason some people use both MSE & Avast.

my main antivirus is Emsisoft Anti-Malware (EAM), but iīve been testing MSE v2-beta together with EAM since it was released,
just to see how they work together.

for more info take a look at my signature....

Hacker-man 1 Thanks for the observation, the point I was trying to get across to the original poster was that Comodo f/wall & Avast AV work good together. A little off topic but just trying to give the poster a little FOOD for THOUGHT!

Imeem Comodo f/wall has a "game" mode option. Furthermore once it has adjusted itself to your habits you will very rarely hear from it. Hoping this helps.

I agree that the Comodo Firewall works well with the Avast AV. Comodo has a great Firewall and Proactive Defense+, but they just started developing the AV a couple of years ago and so a lot of people mix and match AV's with the Comodo Firewall.

MSE + SuperAntiSpyware Paid + Comodo using their DNS Servers behind a hardware router.
With Stand alone malwarebytes scanner...

Other than self inflicted wounds, this is about as safe as you can get.
MSE is pretty darned good for free.

Nothing you can install can prevent a user from being dumb...lol. There truly is no software to counteract user error...

For MSE+Avast I thought it's bad to have multiple antivirus system on one computer, especially running them at the same time

What benefit do you get from using their DNS servers?
