Microsoft Security Essentials Virus Protection for Windows

My son n law is the IT director of a company that processes around 100 million dollars in internet credit card transactions each year. He suggested that I go to Microsoft Security Essentials virus protection. He has it it in all of his personal computers. I installed it about two months ago and I am pleased enough to recommend it on this forum.


Google the term "Microsoft Security Essentials" and check it out for yourself. No more subscription fees to Norton, Macifee or Computer Associates. If you decide you want it, it is a free download, no subscription fee and it updates daily.

All of the big AV companies offer a free AV package and I imagine all of them are about the same.
The companies are grouped together to form a defense against Virus propogation and they all share info towards that common goal.
They have for several years.

The packages you might buy are just more sophisticated allegedly at detecting the patterns of Virus behavior so that they might prevent a Virus for you that has not been defined yet and a solution found for.

As long as you let them update I would suggest any of the free big name programs.

I use AVG,AVAST,Microsoft etc. interchangeably and have had few Virus incidents on the machines that I support.

Funny thing is that most Virus I encounter seem to come from online card playing sites?
Also funny is that once infected and cleaned most people seem to keep going back to them anyway?

Go Figure.
