Windows 7: Microsoft Security Essentials good?

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) SP1

Personally, I couldn't care at all what anyone chooses to use as an AV program. Myself, I go for the one that performs the best on a regular basis

Install MSE if you don't want to pay for another app. Simple.

I use MSE; I recommend it to all my friends and clients, so far, everything's going great! Can't go wrong with it, so give it a try.

Just as long as you don't have 2 real-time scanners going at the same time, you should be good.

There are reports that Malwarebytes and MSE work well together, but I can't recommend running 2 scanners as a general rule.

I have NOD32 on my Vista partition that doesn't run out until June this year. When I got Windows 7 last October I thought I'd give MSE a try, thinking that if it worked out alright I wouldn't need to renew my NOD32.

I wont be renewing NOD32 I'm very happy with MSE it does a very good job and isn't heavy on resources either, I have it running alongside the paid version of MalwareBytes, which runs in real time and the free version of SpywareBlaster the Windows firewall all behind a very secure router.

Windows 7 Home Premium

Its interface is extremely simplistic though, its process on task manager is SLIGHLTY high. On my task list, msmpeng.exe usually takes around 80 megs of ram... BUT that doesn't make it a bad program.. Just more ram to load during startup, causing a slightly degradation in system speed.
