Microsoft Security Essentials


This antivirus program offers a very clean and tabbed interface. Its Home tab provides you with brief information about your current system security status. Basically, green is OK, yellow – pay attention, red – bad. To the right, you will find the three scan options, so actually it takes a couple of clicks only to initiate a scanning process.

Besides the refined graphical user interface and regular updates, the program demonstrates decent performance too. It seems to be light on resources and fortunately it doesn't take ages to finalize a scanning procedure. The software offers decent virus and spyware detection too.


If you still use Windows Vista or 7 and you are looking for a baseline security program, Microsoft Security Essentials should be your choice. It doesn't require many system resources and provides you with proper virus protection.
