Yeah, if he doesn't care about trojans or zero days. MSE is great, but it doesn't compare to a full protection suite...
This. As someone who fixes PC's for friends and family I have seen numerous computers infected with xyz virus and MSE is installed but disabled by said virus. Unfortunately I've seen the same thing with NOD, it was happily running, displaying it's icon in the systray but the PC was basically unusable due to some virus.
Perhaps it would be better to look at another antivirus vendor as HawkMan suggests. I personally would recommend Kaspersky Antivirus. Just my $0.02
