I never had that problem, but I did always lag when uploading files larger then 1mb to a site (whether it be SF or Skydrive). :| Unsure if it was MSE related.

It appears that updates are done automatically. I have it installed on my XP home computer.

Quick and efficient installation, just like a 4mb file should be.

If you have a pirated copy of windows, beware, it requires validation. Sucks to be you. :P

It's worth it if you're paying for security software, and NOT engaging in risky behavior.

If you are doing high risk activities, you should probably pay for a high end solution.

I've decided to give it a trial

I have no problems with avast but never like to rely on any one piece of software.

Also of course as it is from Microsoft and is free it will, I believe become very popular. I need to be able to comment on this if a client asks so will run it for a week or two and see what happens

First impressions are Good

Install very smooth

Native 64 bit code installed (no *32 in Task manager anyway)

Low memory overhead - highest I've seen is 6100K active and now sat at 640K

CPU overhead is almost non existent in normal use
