Is anyone using this, or have they tried it? It seems like it is a free download for any authorized Windows operating system.

I'm thinking about giving it a shot in place of AVG. Something is really fishy with my network, and I was thinking of trying some new stuff.

Definitely better than AVG, in my experience. It tended to catch more crap than AVG ever did, and I've used it on several computers already to clean shit up.

I used it this past weekend to clean up two trojans that AVG missed. Anecdotal, but so far I've been pleased. Steve Gibson of GRC recommends it over AVG as well, and I value his opinion quite a bit.

I've read nothing but good reviews on it; it doesn't seem to be a fad, some old school computer tech gurus are really raving about it. I guess that's good enough for me. Bye Bye, AVG.

Anyone have any experience with this?

MSE is really the way to go in my experience. Its free, integrated nicely with the OS, and doesn't come with a bunch of bloat. When setting up Windows for people I always recommend/install MSE.

MSE is excellent. I've been using it since I started using 7. Its light, efficient, and does its job really well.

I agree. Ran a full scan on two of my wireless laptops tonight...

One came back clean as a whistle (the one I always use and was suspect of), one came back with a few minor issues (one that I hardly ever use and would have never been suspect of) and everything seems to actually be okay.

MSE seems to be a light, efficient, and effective tool. It has a simple, clean, and easy interface. Would definitely recommend. :yesway:

I've been using it for a while now... seems to run more efficiently than any other AV I've used and found viruses on an external hard drive that both AVG and Avast missed.
