    Nice Post..But i dont agree with MSE , there are lot of third party free applications like AVG,King Soft,Unthreat Anti virus etc with better detection rate and secuirty.

    Dear Jishnu, You are right but i think it only happens if we don’t update MSE regularly. I have done a survey with a virus file and almost every antivirus detected it. And the other thing, In Windows 8 we don’t have to download and install any file or software just open MSE and keep it updated.
    With Regards.

    I believe in Avast because I have been using since 2010 and I am fully satisfied with it.

    Your choice is good, but I think you should include Avira, Webroot and Panda Antivirus.
