Time to ditch Microsoft Security Essentials / Windows Defender

For two years running, MSSE has performed worst in Dennis Technology Lab’s anti-virus tests. This year, it achieved a detection rate of 68%. This compares to the next worst performer, Panda Free Antivirus which scored 90%.

The best free performer was Avast! Free Antivirus with 98%, followed by AVG with 93%.

While MSSE is better than none at all, it is our advice to install a better antivirus. Contact Adam on 01646 602248 if you need help with this.
