    Ive noticed that MSE will catch the "PC Antivirus 2008/2009/2010" crap in its tracks, whereas AVG, Avast, Panda enterprise, and Kaspersky never did a thing to it.

    I use it on all my personal machines, recomend it to others, and even put it on my work laptop before we updated our AV files to support windows 7.

    This is the second independent AV test that rates Microsoft AV as the best-performing. I will have to try it out now! Although I am still skeptical on Microsoft's ability to effectively maintain a AV solution.

    **Personally I use Sophos & F-Secure.....and more recently Fortinet AV Client (Fast, Free and loaded with tons of features.)
