I've read it here. http://www.howtogeek.com/173291/goodbye-microsoft-security-essentials-microsoft-now-recommends-you-use-a-third-party-antivirus/

 

Well I know that common sense is the best anti-virus I can ever have, but to further prevent nasty things from infecting my computer, I should really have AV software installed in my PC.

 

So I was wondering if I should switch to another free antivirus? Or the above link was just a bluff? Need your opinion. Thank you!
