Thanks, the tech herald review is the kind of thing I was looking for. Seems like it did pretty well in their testing.
I am still interested in hearing other peoples' experiences with it.
The only problem I have had with it so far is that in scheduled scanning MSE will scan all files & folders that are shared on the network, if you are on a network with shared folders available, and eventually will get stuck on a large shared file. The files it was getting stuck on on my network were large game files 10gb+ in size. Which sucks, because you can't do a custom scan with the scheduled scan, it has to be a quick or a full scan; and in the options to exclude locations in the scan, networked drives are not an option. The problem doesn't seem to appear in regular scanning, just scheduled scanning. When I first looked it up, it seemed that it was a recognized problem and was being worked on.
Actually...now that I think about it, I wasn't awake to watch the scheduled scan the last couple times, but it must have completed without getting stuck like it did before because I haven't woken up and seen it stuck. So perhaps they've fixed it. I'll change my scheduled scan time so I can watch it and see if its still going after shared folders.
