A couple of days ago Microsoft released MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials). This is a FREE anti virus and malware application. I have been using the beta version for several months now, and I’m very happy with it. It auto updates, scans your computer and checks everything you download from the internet without bugging you with “You need to update…”, “Your computer was just scanned for viruses” etc. It’s very light weight so it doesn’t steel your computers performance like F-Secure and other AVs.
I was curious about if this actually was as other AVs, so I found a couple of viruses and downloaded them. Surely, right after I was finished downloading them, MSE said that it had found viruses and that it was going to clean my computer. Two minutes later it said it had cleaned my computer. Awesome! So, what are you waiting for? Uninstall your slow AVs and install MSE. Remember that even though you’ve got AV, you still need to think logically when surfing!
