Yeah, but remember its 'basic security' if your looking for advanced options perhaps MSE isn't for you? No one can make a product thats for everyone. :|

Click on settings and see if you can set MSE's scan to coincide with the way you want it

Can you exclude the memory test in boot manager?

That's a bit disappointing. I understand the concept of this being a "basic" security solution, but would it be that complicated to make the hosts file replacement an option (defaulted on, for that matter) for those who do use custom hosts files?

Used MSE since it came out, and never had it scan on boot, or it does it so quickly it still boots under 30 seconds.

This is really the only thing that's preventing me from installing MSE.

Is it really that annoying?

Did you try disabling MSE from ms-config, which sort of defeats the purpose of it being there, but you could always run it later on?
