Windows 7: Back to MSE

Back to MSE

After seeing the following review on YouTube, I decided to go back to MSE for now. Running it, ThreatFire and Windows Firewall. The firewall issue in ESS and Windows 7 and sharing folders is annoying me, so I figured why not try MSE again, even though I have a license for ESS for a couple more years.

If you're not convinced about MSE, watch this video:

I keep jumping back and forth between MSE, ESS and Nod32. Can't seem to decide. I've tried others as well, but Nod32 and MSE seem to be the lightest on resources for me and work well in my setup.

I was pretty amazed by that review though. Matt has done some interesting reviews, but it's not often he throws 10 links at a product and it gets them like it did in this video. I would have liked to see the exact same 10 thrown at Nod32 though just for kicks.

Obviously those links are old now from the video and odds are they won't be active anymore, plus I don't have a test machine like he does to see what Nod32 might do.

The one constant these days on my system though is ThreatFire 64-bit beta. It performs very well and has really protected me from some test sites I've gone to. I would strongly suggest everyone try ThreatFire - it's free so how can you go wrong and you don't have to worry about it conflicting with your current anti virus.

yeah, it would have been good to see NOD32 handle those links. I'm very happy with it. It's the first thing I install after the os. It's never failed me and most times I don't even know it's running. The computers at my work were running AVG when I started there. I got rid of it and threw NOD on and it found a lot of infected files that AVG had missed

I too like MSE but i wish Microsoft make another version that intergrates an Internet Security Suit too. But this one is nice.

That's v3.0 of ESET though. Old version of course. Look around and you can see his review of ESS 4.0 which fares much much better on adware and malware.

NOD32 is lighter, and works great in prevention.
