One more point about MSE, it has not been know to cause problems. I do BSOD work and most of the others have caused BSOD, which you do not want. They also cause freezing and slow downs.

I agree with Rich and Kari's advice. However, Vipre Antivirus Premium is a very good internet security pack. As a long time Vipre user, I can assure you it wont slow down your computer and its detection capabilities are also very good.
