Microsoft security essentials has no paid version, and was designed by Microsoft who, hey, also designed windows. So it's probably better than a lot of AV's, paid or not.

Just because you pay for something, does not automatically make it good.

Actually quite a lot of the paid antivirus programs are a lot better.

Yes it does. It's called Microsoft Forefront Client Security.

MSE does perform just as good as the other free AVs though the selling point of it is the user interface (which is a set it and forget it style). It also does not demand a lot of resources to run. Another selling point is that it offers a white list that is much easier to use (i.e. if it detects a trainer as a virus, you can tell MSE to allow the program to run upon detection).

Then again AV's tend to lag behind the virus curve as no AV can protect fully against a zero day virus attack.

This guide = Better chance not getting a virus in the first place (and you don't argue with R1CH...he's the Wizard):

Just forget about free stuff on net, and if you want to use an anti-virus then use Kaspersky or Norton or Avira.

I have Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 on my Vista O.S and Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 on my 7 O.S.

Microsoft Forefront is for business use though, so it isn't really applicable here

i use MSE in combination with other utilities/browser add-ons to keep my computer safe and clean

though the best defense against viruses is YOU, knowing what sites not to visit, what things you shouldn't attempt to download, and what emails you shouldn't open, though more often than not you'll have to learn them the hard way
