    It is still a basic tool with low detection for people, who do not really care about security.

    security


    We are close as I use 8.1 with Defender(newer MSE), MBAM, SpywareBlaster, the native firewall and am behind a router.

    I was helping a friend with Vista and noticed Defender is part of the OS which is turned off when MSE is downloaded. ODD!

    That old Defender was a single program and MSE was the same program + an Anti-Virus program so that is why Defender is turned off. This is true except for Win 8 as they integrated MSE into the OS and renamed it Defender.

    Yeah, until next occasion. Anyway isn't it a hint when company that made some SW, particularly AV labels it's own product as "not good enough" and recommends to use something else ?
    I also found many free programs better than some payed ones to do same thing.

    Defender


    I have always felt uneasy using Defender due to its test scores but I try to use Windows compatible programs. On occasion I wander that is why I have supplemented SWB + MBAM. If I were not behind a router I might use another program.

    Anyone out there with 8.1 using another program and feel satisfied with it?

    I think you can protect the machine without having to pay, or not?
