Rivals ding the free antivirus software, but AV-Test.org says it's 'very good'

That is quite encouraging!
I love it how the other AV companies find fault with it.

Thanks for the replies, I just formatted my drive and did a clean install of 7232 x64 (I was getting bored with 7201 and my files were very unorganized) and installed MSE immediately and am loving the simple interface. Microsoft is starting to get a good reputation with its stable beta software.

MSE is good and light weight but it doesn't have much features as compared to KIS 09. Im using KIS 09 on win 7 and MSE on an old win xp computer.

morro sounds like it will be nod32's biggest competitor, I am still using nod 32 2.7 on my xp box due to its lightness and my win7 still has no av as the options for it all too bloated. morro may well be the saviour for me.

MSE is not lightweight. It uses over 50mb of memory.
