I've used MSE and NA as well.
Don't recommend NA though.

You must be trolling... McAfee is terrible.

I use MSE, not had an issue for years! I recommend NOD32 aswell if people ask for a paid alternative

There's no single one program out there that will prevent all viruses. Just don't visit shoddy websites and don't click on any links in any emails unless you're certain it's not spam.

With that being said though, I've used MSE for over a year now and it really does seem to be quite decent. I bundle it with MalwareBytes and do periodic scans but lately I haven't bothered much simply because I just don't visit any dodgy sites so there's nothing to detect!

I use Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes. These two and all (okay, maybe most) of your security problems are solved.

I've used Avast, Avira, Kaspersky,AVG and a lot of others and I prefer MSE (used with Malwarebytes) over all of them.

Have to agree here. Also why not avoid 90% of the virus's out there and run linux for your non-gaming.

McAfee is a total resource HOG and it SUCKS thumbsdownsmileyanim.gifdevilsmiley.gif and has for a very long time - same for Symantec being a resource hog [after the great Norton years before Sym. started really messing around with it].

I'm sure allot of OCN'ers realize why McAfee aka McA-CRAPPY and Symantec (possibly Kaspersky but I have no experience with it] offer their product for free with rebate???????? Go Figure!!! and then suck up renewal $$s from the misinformed.

It took me 3 years to convince my bro-in-law and two nephews to stop using those bloated, resource hogs. After having to hack McA-crappy off of their PCs and NBs, they are running ~tip-top with MSE.

I used Norton for DOS, Win 3.11 for several years before Symantec proceeded over the years to bloat it out of sight. I used AVG for several years and they bloated up, then went to AnitiVir, which was decent, then to Avast, which was a bit better when I had prolonged challenges syncing updates with AntiVir.

Lastly and currently: MSE RULES thumbsupsmiley.png ... specool.gif ... cheers.gif
along with Malware Bytes and a bit of Spy Bot -S&D from time to time

MS has gotten it right this time or at least for now.

Note: Only thing I don't like about MSE is that only way to update the program (not just definitions) is by using IE or merely do it with MS Update.

OK, I'm off my soap box, but bloatware and resource hogs are total crap and force my somewhat experienced opinion.
MSE RULES!

Honestly though common sense goes a long way. I only use MSE "just in case".

^ The bold. I use Avast Free Edition. And honestly, it's off half the time. It's off right now. I turn it off before gaming and always forget to turn it back on. Common sense usually does more than any AV could. thumb.gif
