MSE or Avast free ? - Page 3

post #21 of 41
MSE here, I used to use Avast, and put it on clients computers.

But after that last major fiasco Avast had, I switched to MSE and had my clients do the same and have not had a single problem, virus etc...

Of course I'm not "Click Happy" like so many people are.

What major fiasco is that?

I have not tried MSE, so I can't really comment on which is better. I can, however, question why everyone thinks Avast is bloated? It's using a whopping 12.7MB of memory on my rig right now...

After watching Avast's memory usage a little more it fluctuates from 2mb to 13mb, most likely depending on the real-time scanners traffic. In any case, even if MSE only uses 2.48mb of RAM all the time, which I doubt, I'll give up that extra 10mb of RAM for the additional scanning features that Avast has. P2P, IM, and Network Shields as well as better email scanning is why I haven't switched to MSE yet.

As someone who was extremely PRO Avast for many years, I can't really suggest it any more these days. Like others have said, the quality is dropping while the bloating is ever-increasing... Though I haven't tried MSE yet, so I can't make any comments on it. But I would find something other than Avast for sure...

I'd have to say... MSE.

MSE over Avast!, AVG, Panda, and others.

MSE all day, every day, and twice on Sundays.

MSE 24/7/12/365.
