I 100% agree. This isn't due to MSE's technical merits as an AV, but so that Microsoft doesn't get sued by the EU.

People that get viruses, keyloggers, malware, rootkits, botnets, greyware, adware etc. etc. do so because they are computer illiterate.


EDIT:Also Just because someone can build a computer and install an OS and Steam does not make them computer savvy. A monkey could build a computer its not hard. Savvviness comes when you can fix problems without Google.

Sometimes you have to go into the "deep" end of the internet to get the information/resources that you want.


So essentially what you are saying is, you don't go anywhere where you aren't comfortable. That doesn't necessarily make you "literate". That just puts you in a bubble.

Neither approaches are "correct" (there is no correct approach)

Just because someone gets malware or rootkits does not make them illiterate. There are some great minds working at developing malware and rookits.

You also shouldn't compare hardware to software.. hardware is alot easier in comparison

Can MSE be readily uninstalled or merely disabled? Been a while since I've looked.

Pretty much all of the Windows built-in features can be uninstalled. Yes MSE can be uninstalled, along with IE.

Aww this sucks. MSE worked really well for me in the past and present.

They are saying that it's the base layer of protection and isn't very good at all, why even bother developing it in the first place?

MSE is for ignorant users, who like to pick the worst from few free alternatives.

Example, someone is asking you, what do you want as a gift, an GTX650ti or Titan? and yet you pick GTX650 Ti doh.gif

well you dont need/want a titan if you only have a 300W PSU and powering a 720p screen

personal choice really and beside MSE works and works well

while other antivirus alternatives give me more adware and the most notorious site on the web
