Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is a FREE antivirus developed by Microsoft. MSE "is not the slowest scanner but it is not the fastest either" according to an article from PCWORLD on December 26, 2010. PC WORLD, however, did find that it does not have the useful feature of "behavior detection, for brand-new malware that doesn't yet have a signature", which has since changed (it now has detection based on behavior)!. You can combine MSE with a program that does (such as "threatfire" FREE) to help optimize the detection of such threats. It is effective in detecting 98.44% of Malware on a system, scores perfect on disinfection & rootkit removal, and finally did not bring up false alarms when it was tested (compared to other FREE anti-virus). **threatfire is not available through us at the moment**

When you are installing any software, from any site, please read everything VERY CAREFULLY upon install.
