    MSE is an Anti Virus software and only works with windows 7 and later OS's. With windows 8, the AV is built into the OS. It's called Defender...aka MSE. You can use a 3rd party AV if you wish. As far as malware is concerned, malware is a generalized term for malware, spyware, adware, trojans, worms and many other types that are constantly being released on weekly and daily basis. So you would need extra protection from such bugs (malware). There is a plethora of this type of software out there, paid and free versions.

    I've listed some Malware software suggestions on the other thread you've created and highly recommend using them. Use them don't use them it's your choice.

    MSE and Windows Defender are similar. MSE is for XP, Vista and Windows 7 ONLY, it cannot run on Windows 8.
    Whynot?
    Because Windows Defender is MSE with a bit more security in it that compliments Windows 8 only
    MSE is not an internet security application
    An Internet Security Application is normally antivirus, antspyway and also a Firewall component in it
    MSE and WD do not have a firewall component in it. You will use Windows 8 Firewall which is excellant
    You should have an anti malware program like Malwarebytes Pro or free or Superantispyware Pro or free
    The Free versions you have to run manual scans and they do not run in "real time" or in the backround
    The Pro versions do because you pay for them
