Microsoft Now Recommends You Use a Third Party Antivirus
In an interview with Dennis Protection Labs, Holly Stewart, the senior program manager
of the Microsoft Malware Protection Center, said that Microsoft Security Essentials was just
a “baseline” that’s designed to “always be on the bottom” of antivirus tests.
She said Microsoft sees MSE as a first layer of protection and advises Windows users to
use a third-party antivirus instead.
For average users — not geeks who can get by with the minimum protection — we’d recommend avast! Free Antivirus.
