Re: Toolbar install

Not so much. MS has recently said that MSE due to it being installed as standard on 8/8.1 and lots of other Windows boxes that in effect it has to be the 'baseline level' of security. That vendors of other products should be striving to produce software that gives higher levels of security.

Basically - MSE - It will cover the major nasty stuff out there but as its the most popular, its the level to beat. Nature of the beast. It's a good product but as it's so common it's going to be the one that sets the standard.

Amazing really that all it would take is someone to come up with a simple AV product that behaves to the user in a similar manner to MSE but with even higher protection and costs say £10 a year.

Instead they all offer over complex and troublesome suites that cost far more but actually offers less to the customer.
