I've time-tested MSE on several computers for all over deuce months - is seems to be a chip flatboat on resources and user interface is decent (why does every antivirus MUST rich person some custom interface with absurd colors and port styling?).
On the former hand, to discharge removing a virus from USB blink of an eye cause - you wealthy person to boot (this is not selfsame convenient). And finally, single of the computers caught about bogus fake antivirus malware, which somehow bypassed MSE and distant it from startup.
