    I've been using MSE for 2 years now and haven't had a problem. I did, however, have problems with AVG.

    Seconded.
    Most people that had computer issues had various performance problems (and infectious ones) stemming from AVG itself (and McAfee).

    I still to this day have had nothing but good things with MSE and free avast. Far better then the Symantec endpoint Im slowly phasing out for MSE.

    MSE is something I would put to my parents computer since it's really care-free (= less calls to me afterwards).

    Personally I prefer Avast, mainly for its webshield feature. However the aggressive sandboxing is something I probably could never explain to my dad simply enough

    I've used both Avast and MSE on a netbook with 1.6GHz Atom and 1GB ram, no problems in that front. It wasn't noticeably slower than without AV.
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack scouts on fire off the shoulder of Well6. I watched sentryguns glitter in the dark near the 2fort4 gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

    Yeah, MSE integrates well with windows, has a decent detection rate and you can set it to update automatically. It works through windows update as well, even if you have auto updates disabled and MSE set to auto, MSE's settings will take priority and it'll still update itself.

    My opinion is that Kaspersky is one of the best security software out there...I am using it for a while and been very happy and confident with it...I recommend it to everyone...

    Kaspersky does have a high detection rate, however it is NOT free and it is resource intensive.
    I still maintain that MSE is one of the best free av's.

    I agree with Deks in that MSE is one of the best free AV's. It's very unobtrusive, scans quickly, and simple to use. The only thing better is to be smart about browsing habits.

    MSE rocks, but honestly any reputable antivirus is going to be fine. AVG, Avast, whatever. I don't think that people need to pay for antiviruses nowadays, though; free ones are good enough.
