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.

It doesn't matter who designed it, take the Gawker website password leaks where they didn't properly secure the passwords, 99% of security issues that actually cause damage stem from user error and ignorance of security. Even if it's just classic calling them up and tricking them into giving out there passwords.
