What do you mean by "Can't use MSE?" I'm just curious...
It's too CPU intensive with my laptop. Loading of the desktop just steam rolls my laptop and yes the process that does it is associated with MSE. Updates were iffy and infrequent in additon to, when it did update, I was looking at another five or six plus minutes of 100 percent CPU. Opening Explorer with multiple icons, most especially the Download folder would take forever and then some to render the icons of apps for viewing. Whilst the slow loading icons was doing it's thing, yes MSE is pegged out the CPU. My personal opinion, I think it's a great product but for the reasons mentioned, I can't use it. I do have it installed on my family members laptops and it seems to work fine for them.
I agree.

Windows 7 Enterprise x64

I've been using Avira Premium Security Suite the last several years, but my subscription ran out. After seeing how well Norton Internet Security works with it's 2010 version, I switched back to it. Norton really stunk for the last couple years, but now they have it slimmed down and working great. I'm extremely happy with it, and it's not easy to make me happy with an anti-virus solution.
