Question about Computers & Internet
Microsoft Security Essentials is one of the best anti-virus programs currently available. It has one of the highest virus/ malware detection rates and also it is very light on the system, i.e; it does not slow down the computer.
Also, there is no need to install any other anti-virus software along with Microsoft Security Essentials. Installing additional AV programs will slow down your computer considerably and also it might have compatibility issues with the existing anti-virus program.
For a secure computer, your existing Microsoft Security Essentials program is enough provided it is updated regularly and a regular scan is performed (at least once a week).
For added security, you can download and install the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware software from: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php . After downloading and installing the software, kindly update it and run a full scan at least once a week.
Hope this answers your query. For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.
