Default Security

Hi, I use microsoft security essential for my desktop and I think my computer works fine. i don't use anything else for security. I just got a new laptop, it comes tomorrow. I was wondering is this enough for maximum protection or should I get more software? I really would like to take the best care of my new laptop. Help please?

If i was you i would get another A/V and disable that thing. I would go with something like SEP or maybe viper. Symantec has really done a good job with what they have done with SEP. Its still a system hog but not as bad as sav or norton are. I would really give it a look.

You should not have to purchase anything else, just run Security Essentials. It is great, if you are not happy with it you can install Avast! I have been using it for years and have never had a problem.
