As we all know, MSE has been going down with really bad test results, and I've finally decided that I really should find an alternative. This really saddens me because my #1 draw for MSE was the really slim footprint. It had a scanner and a real-time protection service that could be turned off with no hassle and that was it really.
So, I want an antivirus that is just as slim as MSE, but also actually protects. I do not need it to scan my e-mails, I do not need it to protect my network, and I do not need it to monitor my fapping sessions or write shopping lists.
- It scans for bad stuff and false positives
Most of the anti viruses I stumble upon these days are quite literally bloated monsters. I was a heavy AVG user back in 2006 or so and by the time MSE was released, AVG had become a bloated monster.
Since the release of MSE, I haven't really been keeping up with the market. I have lately tried a couple of programs like Avast, AVG and Ad-Aware and they do apparently protect just fine, but they're just too bloated.
