"Microsoft Did This One Right!"
My computer runs much faster on MSE than it did on any free or paid AV software...go figure. Easy install, easy to use, pretty much a set-it-and-forget-it program. Nothing,repeat, nothing has gotten past it. Ever wonder just who owns these so-called "AV Review Labs" that put out all those "reviews" of AV software? Who pays them? Who are they working for? I do know their "reviews" don't match what they say about this program. I think they are just bought-and-paid-for agents for some of the AV software makers to set-up a third-party to knock the competion.
First scans take awhile, second scans go much faster.
Do your own research - don't take some "AV Lab's" "results as gospel. You wouldn't buy a car without driving it first, would you?Note: be sure you remove all traces of any other AV/Malware software on your computer before installing MSE.
