Till now I used AVG Free edition to protect my Pc from viruses and spywares,as  Beta of Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) released I wanted to test its  like threats detection level ,it’s features and impact of it on system performance.For that I uninstalled AVG and installed MSE.

As you should know you must uninstall any anti-virus and anti-spyware programs installed in your computer to install MSE ,so that two anti-viruses might not interfere each other and effect system performance.

Microsoft Security Essentials

After installing MSE I updated it and it did not found any new threats as AVG not found also initially.MSE sit’s on the background silently watching gives the impression no anti-virus installed in your Computer.But MSE unable to detect pen drive viruses where AVG does better in detecting autorun viruses from USB drives.
