Final thoughts

I am personally using Microsoft Security Essentials and I find great performance of Microsoft Security Essentials. The best mentionable thing I see that after installing it, the performance of my computer doesn't decrease. But for the other types of antivirus like Kaspersky, AVG (I personally used them) the performance is degrading day by day. But still now Microsoft Security Essentials does not have any affect on my computer performance. I personally suggest to use Microsoft Security Essentials fro your computer and protect your computer free from viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.
