Recently I have decided to replace my current anti-virus software with Microsoft Security Essentials. So last weekend I have done this exercise. My initial thoughts are it is a nice work by Microsoft. It does not give much load to my laptop. Seems to have fairly good protection from virus.
I have tried downloading some virus infected files, which triggered alerts. Also opened some old virus infected files from the archive.
The thing is that all the tests were done against the old viruses, now what I need to see is that how this work against the new or zero day threats.
Overall, I am satisfied at this point in time and waiting to see how this is going to react to the new threats.
