Been using KIS for three years now. Almost never have a virus detected (I stick to mostly known websites/software, etc). Wondering if I should not renew my license and go with the freebie MS Security Essentials. Heard good things about the MS product. I usually buy the 3-pc KIS product for about $28. I know it isn't much money, but the more I can eliminate misc expenses, the better. Suggestions?

Stick with the KIS, it is one of the few makers that is consistent with top notch results and is light on the system.

BTW, u have a great deal too.

MS Security Essentials is a basic step towards security, but is no match for KIS.
