MS Security Essential and Kaspersky Internet Security 2014

Have been persuaded to use Kaspersky and am awaiting download. Do I have to remove Sec Essentials before installing Kasp ?

Yes, it's better to remove any other antivirus prior to install a new one. Reason is that two active antivirus scanning the system at the same time may conflict between them and unnecessarily slow down your system.

Always have only one antivirus doing on-access system scanning. Keeping MSE or anything else just for on-demand scans is fine.

After my first doubts about MSE, I recently found it to be quite effective. I had Kaspersky in earlier years and found it to be quite messy. If I had to choose a paid AV program, I would go with Norton (NIS) with which I had a very good experience in the past. Just need to find one for free again - which is sometimes being offered.

Just started testing KIS 2010, seems really good! TONES of features and it uses less than 15MB of RAM. It may be better than Vipre and NOD32. Also, the firewall is really good!
