Windows Essential, the anti virus

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have heard that Windows Essential is one of the best anti-virus application. But it has never detected any virus or worm so far in my Laptop and that creates doubts about its efficiency.

Is it really a good one?

Windows Essential is a free Antivirus. It has Pros like Simple user interface and not confusing. It has got real good rating from independent labs for Virus detection BUT what I found was it  does not have strong protection on Windows XP.

It still had some threats left after completing its run.

If you really are an admirer of Microsoft products and feel really safe in their hands, then go for it. I would give it a 3 rating out of 5.

There are many other free Antiviruses that perform lot better.

You can try one of these:

I would go for something like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free 1.51, Norton Power Eraser, Norman Malware Cleaner 2.1, Comodo Cleaning Essentials etc

Comodo Cleaning Essentials is the best bet.

If your system perform well then you don't need to worry about your antivirus. As I am also using window security essential antivirus for last 4 months and its work perfectly.

It detected viruses and worms time by time (see attached my recent detected worm detail for your review).

The best thing which I really like about WSE that it's too light and didn't speed down my system.

Protecting your PC against viruses, Spywares, Malwares and other unwanted software that swarms in the web is the job of Microsoft Security Essentials. There are several things about this antivirus that makes it user friendly.

First of all it is free.

Another thing is that it is so easy and fast to install and very easy to apply.

Its updates are hassle free because it works inaudibly giving 100% in its effectiveness you need not worry on pauses or making updates on its version.

It absolutely detects several viruses and unwanted Software when it detects one, thus making it a very good one for your PC.

Nice one melon. 

That is a very encouraging snapshot of the software.
