Thankyou. I have done so, and all operations have been smooth eversince, no crashes. AVG however used to alert me about numerous daily cookies and threats on pages I visited and so on, After every scan there would be numerous cookies listed. After an MSE scan however there is nothing, it has consistently said after scanning "no problems found"... but no problems have arisen either. I wonder if AVG was alarmist or inventing problems or if MSE is just much better?
In my opinion, AVG is big on detecting tracking cookies. But MSE seems to concentrate on the more serious threats. I just changed from AVG yesterday back to MSE.
AVG would not let me into the virus vault for over a month now and yesterday wouldn't show me the current "history". Very disappointed in AVG's lack of concern especially when I saw where AVG had similar problems with virus vault in previous years. One thing I did like about AVG was the Safe Site indicator, but I understand even though MSE doesn't have that feature, Internet Explorer 8 has a feature called SmartScreen that is helpful.
