I wouldn't recommend Microsoft security essential since Microsoft itself recently recommended using something else. Link to the story Link

Crud! What a shame to discover this about Microsoft and Microsoft Security Essentials. I'm still using Windows 7 with MSE. I thought it was doing a good free job because it seems 'clean' and it's MS--got to rethink that now don't I.

Won't recommend it now but I think I will ignore the 'problem' and just continue to think I'm aware and careful.

So who runs AV-Test?

Layer your protections and you should be fine.

I have ZoneAlarm Free for a firewall and SpybotSD2 for anti-spyware.

well hello, this is my very first post on here, just like to say i have avast free antivirus program ive seen so many post about uninstalling it but i just found a way to keep my avast installed and still download a trainer for rage. All i did to avast is disable it until i restart my computer. right click avast in your task bar,scroll to Avast! shields control a small window will appear, now you have click on 1 of the 4 to choose from.
disable for 10 mins
disable for 1 hour
disable until next restart
disable permanently

I put no faith in their testing as I've had more repairs in with Bit Defender, Norton, Kapersky, and McAfee supposedly protecting the computers, yet they are the one's most infected.

Obviously, I see Norton and McAfee most, but actually see MSE, AVG, and Avast least.

Additionally, they scored MSE lowest on zero day, not overall. In order for an AV to get certification, it has to total a minimum of 11, MSE scored 10.5. Given that Bitdefender's Internet Security 2013 scored a total of 17 whereas Kaspersky's Internet Security 2013 scored a 15, they are both internet security packages, not just antivirus. This invalidates the whole scoring system in my eyes. It's like comparing a base model car to a ultra luxury sedan and complaining the base model isn't fast enough.

The problem with the Internet Security Suites, is people don't understand the prompts and allow just everything. That's more hazardous than MSE, especially since it scored perfectly in the false alerts and false positive area.

Does this update also get patched through AVG anti-virus?

I agree with most of what you said but I won't use an anti-virus when the company that makes it says people should switch to something else. I don't think that Microsoft said it because of the score,They always just blew off those scores so I think they have another reason. I used it for quite some time and recommended it until I read that article. I just went back to Avast.
