What's the difference between using free MSE and other paid anti-virus?
Is it okey if I just use MSE?
Just about OK - but why not use Bitdefender free edition? It is small
with low overheads and Bitdefender or Kaspersky win every AV comparison
Tried it, but it wanted me to register, and the registration didn't
work, because the registration e-mail used techniques commonly used by
spammers and malware distributors -- why should areputable antivirus
group do that?
They send you a URL, but instead of sending it in plain text, which
any decent e-mail reader will render, they wrapped it up in all sorts
of fancy codes, which not only didn't work, but crashed my computer.
Still, I suppose you can set a thief to cvatch a thief.
But I used MS Security Essentials instead, until they stopped
supporting Windows XP, and then went back to0 Avast.
