Microsoft Security Essentials Overview is basically a stripped-down version of OneCare aimed at users who either canít or don't want to pay for antivirus/anti-malware software.Microsoft Security Essentials auto-updates once every 24 hours and there is no setting within MSE to change the scheduled time or frequency. See the MSE Definitions/Signatures Update FAQ. However, you can always manually download the latest Microsoft Security Essentials updates from the Microsoft Malware Protection Center Portal.

Before installation, Microsoft Security Essentials checks for a validated copy of Windows and will disable Windows Defender. You need to uninstall all other "Memory Resident" antivirus applications before you install MSE.

MSE and Avira are both real time antivirus programs. So therefore, you can't run them both on the same machine. I would personally use Avira instead, because it is one of, if not the best, free antivirus programs out there.
