Windows While Microsoft's Security Essentials has been very well received because of its small footprint and unobtrusive nature, it didn't always rank among the very top when it came to its detection rates. Overall, I'd still say it's one of the best antivirus tools. Now, with version 2.0, Microsoft has improved the detection mechanisms, but of course, it'll take some tests before we can see how effective they are.

I still don't really see that 7 is all that much better than XP. And for VMs, it's lighter weight than W7 in disk, cpu, and memory usage. I intend to keep using it as long as my applications support it.

MSE, however, does seem to be the most resource-efficient AV product I've used.
