Re: Avast free vs Microsoft Security Essentials

MSE uses the same engine of Microsoft Forefront Client Security and it's the lightest and best integrated antivirus in the free editions' world IMHO.

Always get problems with Avast and once per year you should uninstall/reinstall the new version or buy the $$ version.
