Do you STILL trust Microsoft to build antivirus support into Windows 8

    I wonder whether the OEMs will continue to supply a 3 month trial of McAfee or Norton.

    I still think the safest security measure is frequent imaging. I had the misfortune to catch a virus twice with MSE on the watch - and I am a very careful surfer. Going back to yesterdays image in those cases was no big deal.

    On the systems where I use Norton Internet Security I never had a problem. But that may be pure luck.

    I think I'll just stick to common sense habits and any old 3 star A/V. Still seems to work for me.



    Although it would be nice to see MSE lift their game. A stellar product start with a consistent decline in a short space of time. It's worrying, but not cause for boycotting just yet.
