Running MSE on windows 7 pro...what should I switch to

I am running Windows 7 pro 64 bit and using MSE. Wondering what free security program I should use that doesnt kill system performance. I have used Comodo before without a problem.

What is your reason for wanting to switch?
I use MSE on two computer and have for years and I'm not aware of any problems.

I also use Malwarebytes Premium 2.0 on one system and 3.0 (Testing) on the other system.

This combination works for me.

Jack,

Are you running MSE with Malwarebytes Premium 3.0 without any problems? I've resisted updating my Premium 2 because I'm worried it means giving up MSE also...

I run both MSE and Malwarebytes 3.0 active at the same time on one system.
The only problem I found was TFC by Old Times doesn't get along with Malwarebytes 3.0.
I just don't use TFC. It's a very old program. Very old program.

Jack,

Final question before I upgrade my Malawarebytes Premium V 2 to V3...

Did you have to make any special settings so there are no conflicts between V3 and MSE? (Such as whitelisting, or turning off certain modules...)

Or did you just install V3 over V2 with all settings set at default?

Don't want to screw up a stable running Windows 7 Pro with V2 + MSE.

I have no white list.
I run MSE default and Malwarebytes also on default, except I don't do scheduled scans for either and I update manually several times a day.

I installed Malwarebytes 3.0 without removing 2.0.
It installed right over the top and automatically inserted the needed codes to activate.
The upgrade took about 2 minutes.
I have this setup on two computers without any problems.

**MSE and Malwarebytes play well together both running active at the time.

I believe MSE only searches for viruses and MBAM searches for Malwares so these two programs can run simultaneously without problems.
