    Default Microsoft Security Essentials

    Does anyone use it? What do you think of it?

    I am using it on a few machines including my main machine.. so far so good.

    Its not very intrusive, and just seems to work in the background.

    I use it on anything that runs Windows. Works great.

    Let me put it this way...I recently switched my mom and aunt's laptops to use it.

    It works well enough, and it integrates very nicely into the OS.

    love it, it actually asks you before it deletes something. unintrusive... it runs awesomely too. i use it on older systems and when removing a virus from customers computers it sometimes catches it before malwarebytes.

    I didn't start using MSE till about a year maybe 2 ago and like it, it seems to catch things right away while I use Stumble! and compared to my free AVG
    it doesn't pop up with a huge window demanding to be updated when that time of the year rolls around.
