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.

Uhhhh...I hate to break the news to ya but it IS third party. MSFT just bought Giant Antispy/antivirus and brought the developers onboard. It is the same guys doing the same job they were before, they just get paid by MSFT instead of selling little shiny discs.
