johnlgalt had written this in response to :
I have implemented Micro$oft's Security Essentials, along with
MalwareByte's AntiMalware (Beta tester = registered) and WinPatrol (also
registered) for my defense.

These are the only three I rely on now for maintaining three Windows
7-based machines and one XP based machine.

I, too, have tried ESET in the past - and Norton, Symantec (both the older
SAV and the newer SEP), McAfee, Avira, AVG, Avast!, and a few others....

M$ has finally come out with a good free product.

Stick with Avira AntiVir
