Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0 – the best security solution??
By on June 15th, 2010

Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0 is one of the best security packages available according to the renowned anti-virus software tester AV-comparatives. These tests are performed periodically by AV-comparatives on the numerous security solutions available.

The security software are tested basically by subjecting them to a plethora of viruses,worms,trojans etc observing how many are detected and also on the number of false positives. Also one of the most important tests is the proactive threat detection test which judges a softwares ability to detect new malware.

It was able to detect 59% of the viruses,trojans and worms thrown showing a respectable detection rate in the proactive detection test. This security package however truly made its mark in the false positives test showing only three false positives while many paid products showed over fifteen.

Its greatest advantage is that its free unlike most other security products which are paid, and their free versions are not that good. To use Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0, the only requirement is to have a genuine Windows operating system. The rest is free.

    This test was published last month. Anyway, remember that this is proactive detection. I place more importance on the retrospective defense test. But yeah, even in that MSE would do pretty well. It's detection is quite good. But, it sucks in healing a system.

      Microsoft Security Essentials is known for the ability to heal completely your system, see the Removal Test of AV-comparatives, on the other hand, Retrospective Test is the Same test than Proactive, do you know the On-demand scan?

        Yeah. That was a slip-up. I meant on-demand test.

    When I scan with Microsoft Essential most of my programs instalation was deleted like “logme in” and etc. With two words you will be better without it! Very slow scanning , my system was slow down very much. I can’t use my computer when scanning. After 2 days of test I had to unistall it.
