should i believe my friend, is he write?
one of my friends told me that m s e is better because avast free attracts viruses and spyware unless you get the paid version. he also said he had lots of trojans that m s e detected but avast didnt, he said he removed avast free and got m s e and it detected them but avast free could not.
Personally I've had problems with avast and switched to mse. I have to see if I face any problems in mse. Experiences vary between users... personally one plus for me is mse requires no registration but doesn't really matter since avast's is free... just a small thing.
Avast can't get rid of malware. Don't know if mse can. I had to use malwarebytes to do so.
