Using two resident AVs including MSE isn't recommended (conflict is something you will always have to be ready for) and when one of them is a Beta I would say that is even more so.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.9.6082 (build 23.9.8494.792) UI 1.0.781/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

It's good to hear M$ is improving MSE. :)

I have 7 64bit and would like to use 64bit av & fw.

I've tried MSE 64bit, but it was heavier than avast! 5.

I will be watching for MSE 2 to go out of beta and

will try it.

I wish there was a 64bit version of ZA.  Yes, I know ZA

works on 64bit & I'm using it.  So, when I try MSE 2, I'll use 7FWC.

I especially wish for a 64bit version of avast! 5.

I'd like to go all the way with 64bit. ;D

I gave it a shot earlier today (already uninstalled because I don't need it). Main interesting point for this new version is the implementation of a script "watcher" that works exclusively with Internet Explorer. It's able to block a web page running a "bad" script and prompt you to allow or deny (that's the network protection setting on my screen shot).

Hi all...

Has the icon (either the shortcut on the desktop or toolbar icon) or program GUI changed at all?

Yep, Much better. It's also passed all the malware tests I've thrown at it so far.

It's really getting better When MSE gets released it's suppose to get lighter on RAM it's still in beta and is pretty solid. Avast and MSE are still the top one's as for avira it went down hill..

MSE is cool, i just hate it's real-time archive scanning. It's useless and totally degrades performance as well as increases resources usage.
Updater is a bit crappy with very long update interval checks but still. If they could only fix this, then i'd have a tough choice between avast! and MSE. But till then, avast! is just way better.

Yeah, That's something I wish they would fix also. Until then, there's always this.
