Having some features work only with IE is weird for a Windows application.
The Windows XP limitation shouldnt affect many. Most have already moved to Windows 6.0 or 6.1.
Any news on whether Microsoft will produce a better firewall?
Beta antivirus.... yeah right... I'll go running signing in...
Remembers me of the deletion of kernel32, and lots of .dlls of some famous anti-virus (Kaspersky, McAffee)
Its not the AV part that is Beta, its the new features.
i moved from avg/avast to security essentials and have not looked back, had no issues at all or infections.
They may have made software that contains security flaws, but they are the only AV that don't have a vested interest in exploiting them.
MSE + Malwarebytes
cant go wrong
beta software should only be run on non essential systems anyway, so if you don't read the notes, which clearly state don't run beta software on essential sysems, it's your hard luck if something goes wrong.
software vendors need to use beta's for testing, as they can't possibly test every variation of system out there on their own.
I see that sometimes.. the builder puts avg + malwarebytes running together- overkill and slows down the system
I like kapersky myself but this might be nice when it's out of beta
avg and malwarebytes work fine together, kaspersky on the otherhand, is slow and clunky.
just make sure that malwarebytes and avg are not running scans at the same time, which is easy enough to do.
so far MSSE has been one of the best free AV programs out, I have been pretty impressed with so ya Im downloading the Beta now ^_^
find mse is like vista makes loads of disk use on first start I norm just remove it as it slows the system down
I used mcafee then security essentials, and I never seem to get anything even though I use the web everyday. It would just be nice to see that it was actually doing something ! But at least it doesn't give loads of false positives like some av's do.
I've always used and recommended Kaspersky, but this latest build is really intrusive and really slows everything down, never had any problems with security essentials its quite un-intrusive and doesn't slow the system down at all while remaining quite effective.
MSSE seems to be the best Free AV out there at the moment, converted me from AVG. A LOT of people I know have also converted over so Microsoft must be doing something right.
