Friends and Family are asking me a lot if they should switch antivirus programs, after I recommended MSE or WIndows Defender For the Ones Running Windows 8, they also heard from another family member that MSE Failed the latest Av-Test with a Protection score of 1.5 out of 6.0. So basically what I was wondering from folks here if it's still wise to recommend Microsoft Security Essentials to Non Computer Savy Relatives and other Friends
Thanks in Advance all
Advice for non-savvy family members (better if you do this for them)
1. Create two accounts one non-admin "standard" for regular use and one "admin" for installation etc.
2. Set the non-admin as default account and tell them if they get prompted for admin account, they are doing something wrong.
3. MSE/Windows Defenders are good for most normal people
In the end, no matter what AV you ask them to use - they will end up ****ing the computer anyway. The AV test scores don't take user stupidity into account.
