I've had great luck with it, which is odd being a microsoft product. Most of the computers I work on either don't have any av or they have the 30 day free trial that came with the computer that expired 5 years ago. Have yet to work on a computer again that I've install MSE on.

So did I waste my $(50 w/DMACC discount) on Norton 360?

"We're going to use Microsoft Security Essentials for this demo, since it's very easy to use and does a great job of protecting you from viruses. There's really no need to spend money on anti-virus software when Microsoft's offerings are more than good enough."

Reading that they are using heuristic real time scanning, does give it a little more credibility for me. Now...if they could figure out a good way to introduce BIS in their software.

Regular scans once a week has always kept me safe with Malwarebytes. Free ftw. I use malware bytes after all pc fixes I do actually, even if I already ran virus removal software because i've seen it still catch things!
