Microsoft Security Essentials

I am getting a New PC and I thought about giving MSE a shot.

I am using AVG Free on my other PCs, and it does a great hob at keeping them safe. Unfortunately, it also blasts my screen with annoying messages and often asks me to to initiate painful installations. Luckily, I have so far managed to avoid installing the reportedly demonic AVG Toolbar.

Therefore, I am considering giving MSE a chance. I did a little research and this got me a bit worried.

While I am not casually dealing with suspicious sites, I do sometimes venture to the "dark side" of the web.

Do you think I should give it a go?
