That said, this machine has MSE on it, as does most of the rest of my equipment, and I've been recommending it to anyone that needs a freebie AV product for residential application. I've *never* had an issue, and *never* gotten a box back sick. But, time will tell. It's certainly an upgrade over the current iteration of AVG Free.

    I switched to MSE because of all the third-party reviews of it, not because Microsoft recommended it. Practically every review of it said that despite being a Microsoft product, it was actually a pretty damn good AV program. I'm very happy with it, so far. It stays out of my way.

    Yeah, AVG free used to be a famous something but now is for the birds.

    Ya, AVG has died slowly, but surely, bloated, not catching what it should.
