Microsoft Essentials

Windows 7. Having used the likes of security systems Kapersky, McAfee and others over the years, I have been recommended to try the free Microsoft Essentials anti virus software. Has anyone experience of this and what is it like, for example its impact on the system start up time,and its general effect on system running speed.

If you have any Anti-malware programs installed they will conflict with MSE on start up unless you stop the anti-malware part of MSE from running.

If you are going to run MSE without any other security programs you could have problems.

Maybe you should have posted this in the Helproom.

I'm using MSE on both my Desktop and Laptop. No problems.

Still run Malwarebytes regularly though.

I have Malwarebytes (full paid version) running on my machine at the same time as MSE. There is no conflict.

You will get a conflict if running another Anti Virus at the same time as MSE,
