A lot of people talk bad about MSE...even Microsoft, but I have had rather good experiences with it. MY company had a client that was using Avast!...the paid version of Avast!. And we were Malwarebyting at least two PCs a week out of about a 100 machines. They were using rather old PCs at the time and it didn't take much running in the back ground before they were not able to work. We convinced them to switch, but there was a licensing gap while we got them on Norton. During this window we put them on MSE and people reported stuff getting blocked...but in three weeks nothing got through..or at least nothing the Norton could pick up. We now have them on virtual desktops still using their cruddy old machines basically as thin clients. Since doing that we haven't had a single issue.
Though I still found it unreal that that they were able to find so much crap out there...we actually were trying to get the management to install Prism to monitor what people were doing, but they refused.
