"Not something I recommend in terms of a antivirus."
Not something I recommend this antivirus has let numerous viruses and other nasty stuff on my pc. The fact that Microsoft makes this antivirus is not intriguing. I thought that with version 4.4 there would be some nice memory changes and better security definition updates but I was wrong. As soon as I updated to 4.4 after a day I got 5 trojans that infected my computer. I recommend Avira their antivirus is a lot more nicer with better security definition updates along with the face it is a lot more lighter. I do not recommend MSE at all and the face that Microsoft's antivirus has not gotten a certification at all in the past so many months it just is not wroth it anymore sadly.
Plenty of cons just read my pro summary.
