Anyone use this or whatever they call itl on Windows 10 now? Seems it always performs poorly in tests but its one of the least intrusive AV programs out there which i like. Ontop of that most other AV programs have had dodgy virus definition updates that have broke some systems. So is it still worth using MSE?
"Most programs have had some dodgy..updates that have broke some systems"
Can't quite see that is a fair statement, perhaps you'd like to explain
As for Microsoft Security Essentials I seem to remember Microsoft adding it to the Windows system as an attempt to protect those who did not appreciate the need for security but for anyone to run internet access these days without top notch security installed is foolhardy to say the least. Add to that the sort of things we do on our computers/tablets/phones, such as accessing our bank accounts and credit cards, and the fact that many think nothing of doing this on wi-fi hotspots with a single password such as "password" for all the stuff on their systems and it really surprises me that more dosh and identity theft doesn't happen
Security is vital when you consider the mess that is caused when it all goes wrong.Several banks offer their customers top grade security software free of charge which must tell you something. Some free security programmes are a basic must if you really can't or won't pay. Any security suite is going to slow the system, some more than others. You know what? Get over it
It really is very important. Ask anyone of the many that thought it wasn't, didn't bother, and found out the hard way
That review incidentally tells you which ones are best. It's worth reading in detail and then doing something about it
