    Seth Rosenblatt : If you're not using Microsoft Security Essentials, you're not following the crowd. Use of the lightweight security suite exploded last year, reports a study on security suite market share.

    Thank God i am not following the crowd :cool: :cool:

    I doubt this report really reflects market share.

    It is only collected from users who have that tool installed. They say it is supposed to be representative of the market as a whole, but I'm not so sure.

    I am not in that crowd either. I am more than willing to pay for a better solution. I also have no idea why people refer to MSE as a suite.

    Microsoft Security Essentials 2.1 has slipped a bit, for sure, but I have a decent helping of confidence they are serious about rigorously improving it, especially since it is a part of Windows 8.

    MSE 4.0, hopefully soon to be public, shall perhaps put (and KEEP) MSE in the game...

    A key element to this surge may be as simple as users of other products cutting costs as times get tough in their own personal budgets. Don't you think this would be one area one would look at and say, 'gas for the car, t.v. subscription, or other pressing expense I think I'll try MSE. If free is available and nothing has ever happened to their machine I can see why one would switch to MSE, good, bad or indifferent.

    Good point. Makes life easy for the bad guys when they know what they are up against for the most part. Specially since MSE doesn't have any self-protection.

    Does Avast have any self-protection ?

    Here is a list of certified partners- http://www.opswat.com/certified/opswat-certified-partners

    Maybe I am overlooking it, but I don't see F-Secure listed as a certified partner. So does that mean that F-secure stats are not included in the quarterly results?

    I highly doubt any of these stats.

    They give a "hint" but not so much more I think.
