So as time passes by...

...as time passes by,MSSE is out for a while now,new NIS is out,and few other security apps are out,what do most of us use as a main antimalware app?
It was Avast before,and now?
Personally,I'm using MSSE even without Malwarebytes,and it serves me quite good,but maybe something better is out so I want to hear a feeedback from others.

I use MSE by itself, and I have had no problems.

MSE is an excellent defense against the evils lurking out there. Jonathan and many others use it as there secondary defense against a Virus. Their primary defense is themselves, we all have to use prudence before enterning a potentially dangerous site. I know the lure and excitement of some of them are hard to resisit, but believe me, it is not worth that ultimate cost, a new computer.

Time to step down from my soap box, I just hope that all the readers that come by, heed my words. Have a Happy and Healthy New Year.

I couldn't agree more I tell people this all the time...

My choice of security software is Comodo Internet Security people either love it or hate it all I can say is it's totally free and offers great 360 degree protection.

my new year resolution is atleast setup my Applocker properly.

So THIS will become my second layer of defence.

About first layer I totally agree with richc46

Dinesh, I see you have NIS running added to MSE.
Are they playing nice together?

Yes no issues, no impact on performance, tighter security.

I have MSE ,ThreatFire, and Malwarebytes. MSE and ThreatFire are always on, and once a week I run Malwarebytes, although it hasn't found anything that slipped through the other two yet.

Also, I run Adblock Plus and NoScript on my Firefox.
