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.

Get a job repairing computers for the public, you'll find it doesn't matter how many security design features they added as over 90% (well, close to 100% really) of the users that get viruses install them manually.
