Microsoft Security Essential is exactly the thing of your wish, which serves not only to protect your computer from the bugs lurking in the system, but also shield the entire system against all malicious elements of internet, offering similar tools integrated for the purpose. Microsoft Security Essentials has consistently retained its high position in the antivirus tests.
It is very small in size and does not affect the computer resources anyway, meaning it carries on its protective work most effectively. This software is designed to work in background. It does not irritate the user with unnecessary detection alerts. And yet it swiftly acquires all the necessary updates automatically from the server to arm itself against the newest threats spawned on the internet. The firewall, however, needs to be configured by the user, but once done so, it is one of the strongest firewalls that a security suit can provide.
The scanning system is absolutely reliable, offering three different scans: Quick – for a superficial scan, full or a detailed scan, and Custom – scan of specific area, files or drives. The suit may not be flashy, but it suffices to say that this useful anti-malware has been a product up to the standard of its manufacturer. This software is mostly compatible with all the latest versions of Windows Operating System starting from XP, Vista, 7 to the latest Windows 8 also.
