I see no reason why ones should be using anything but Microsoft Security Essentials these days.
Most people who have dealt with Microsoft's security systems like myself over the years have learned to not trust their Security systems due to how often they get hacked. Most Viruses and malware is designed and targeted for Windows based systems (mostly due to higher user base). This is also why i use Kaspersky anti-virus and Malware Bytes to keep my PC clean. My Kaspersky AV has kept me protected better than any other AV program I've ever used, and I've used a lot (AVG, Avast, Norton), I wouldn't trust any other company with my PC security.
