Microsoft Security Essentials – Best Free Antivirus

Microsoft Security Essentials – Best Free Antivirus

I have used many antiviruses till now. All of them were ok. Some of the antiviruses which I used were: ESET Nod32 Antivirus 4, AVG Internet Security 2011, Bit Defender 2011, Avira, Avast etc.

My favorite was ESET Nod32 Antivirus 4 and it was very good. But, recently my PC got attacked by different kind of viruses who had capacity of crashing the whole computer which would lead me to buy a new Hard Disk, Motherboard and RAM. When it was attacked, the antivirus, ESET Nod32 Antivirus 4, was also attacked and it was not functioning properly. I used some online scanners, though nothing happened. I tried many ways and somehow 20% viruses were removed.

Then I removed ESET Nod32 Antivirus 4, and installed AVG Internet Security 2011, which found more 9 viruses and killed them. I thought, AVG Internet Security 2011, was the best, but when I opened my drives, there were still many viruses. At last, I found a webpage of the website,, where there was a new free antivirus named Microsoft Security Essentials. I removed AVG Internet Security 2011, and installed Microsoft Security Essentials, I updated it and installed an update for my OS required to run Microsoft Security Essentials. Then when I scanned my PC, it found all the main viruses which could not be deleted by great antivirus like AVG Internet Security 2011, ESET Nod32 Antivirus 4, and Online Scanners etc. Then, it removed all of them. At last, all the viruses were removed and my PC was clean and free from viruses.

(And do you know one thing: When these dangerous viruses attacked my PC, I consulted with some of the people whose jobs are to make computers maintained and free from viruses, told that I should format my whole Hard Disk, and I could be free from those viruses. They also told that they are very dangerous. I told them that I want to save my files in my Hard Disk. Then they told that, there was no way for this. I was shocked, but I did not lose my hope)

Is it trustful?

Microsoft Security is originally prepared and launched by a trusted company Microsoft. So, you cannot expect any fraudness with the company. It is free to download and it is not a demo or trial version. It’s a full version which you can download for free of cost. I think, in the future, Microsoft Security Essentials will leave all the other antivirus back as many antiviruses are costly and have limited time of usage.
