Elena Santos

Pros
  • Easy to install and use
  • Automatic updates
  • Several scan types
  • Light and unobtrusive
Cons
  • Doesn't disinfect files
  • Too basic for expert users
  • No firewall

"A safe and extremely dependable program for protecting your p.c!i"

I love it, and I feel it protects my laptop fully.

I like being able to scan for viruses anytime I want to and on the files

I choose. Another aspect is being able to check for any updates whenever I want, just by clicking on the button .

Pros
  • I like feeling that my pc, and laptop are safe with Microsoft security essentials!
Cons
  • At the moment, I really cannot think of what will improve it.
