GameFAQs is the only forum I've been too (or anywhere in any form of reality) where MSE is popular. Its mediocre.
AVG, Avast, Ad-Aware, Avira, or dingdongdoobadoo is good for the primary real-time AV. Stack it with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware (or something comparable) for condom reinforcement. End up needing none of them 99.999999999% of the time because you'r e a smart cookie that knows how to pull out. Right?
MSE has always been good enough for me, but I wouldn't recommend it to a technologically illiterate person as I've seen friends have trouble with it. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
I've tried a few, AVG is very annoying. MS Essentials is ok but I've heard they stopped updating it or plan to stop soon. Avast has been good, its got plenty of features in the free version, it hasn't bugged me about .dll files in my Steam folder like AVG, and overall its been good. That paired with Malware Bytes and you're good to go. --- http://www.last.fm/user/akuma634
