Microsoft Security Essentials protects against malware. With the Windows Firewall enabled with MSE installed and running, the PC is adequately protected as long as you also keep the OS up to date with all offered updated via Windows Update and practicing safe computing such as not clicking on links or opening attachments from unknown sources.
You don't need, nor should you use, any other security software that provides real time protection. You can use other security software, as desired, to scan the PC as long as it does not provide real time protection.

Is Microsoft Security Essentials-Windows Internet Explorer. The only Security I need to ever purchase for my PC? or do I need another security system like "M"-Malwarebytes'Anti-Malware I'm guessing it mostly protects my emails.__Thank You__ampogue

So theoretically would one cancel out the other?

What would you expect Microsoft to say; that their Mse does not protect the system without help from another product?

reading through that thread there is still argument for and against , so im still none the wiser i would possibly revert to manual scans although many people use both .
What would be the likely danger , ie whats worst case scenario if conflict occurs

I think the question is can you run two real time protection AVs without conflicts arising? I've always understood that this is inadvisable, J

I don't think there is potential danger. It might slow down the performance of the System. The portion i quoted is a MVP.

Its specifically MSE and Malwarebites, i know using different av's simultaneously creates issues but not sure as to Mse and MBAM as the jury still seems out.

I run NOD32 and the full version of MBAM with real time enabled and have no issues at all. Been doing it for years.
