Baidu WAS a good antivirus!! but they add Baidu PC App Store and Baidu PC Faster to version 4.4 and they install without any user notification!

No thank You! Bye Baidu. MSE I LOVE U <3

It is a good antivirus. I just installed this version using the download link from above and I DID NOT get any Baidu PC App Store and Baidu PC Faster. Sorry to disappoint you. What's more, despite the relatively large file size (133 megs) the CPU/Memory usage is minimal compared with similar programs:

btw, If you want to keep Baidu it's ok! but you may uninstall Avira(I saw Avira updater in your screenshot) cause Baidu uses Avira engine ;)

Baidu, is an excellent AV... always gets high marks in AV tests. But If you uninstall it, it always leaves a lot of unknown crap in the registry. As veternan... mentioned it also installs loads of other stuff silently after a few hours, or days after being installed.

I think I will stick with MSE + Malwarebytes Premium...

Yes they did, but later re-realised another saying that they are concentrating on detecting real world virus's and not rare ones... but the thing is with the tests that various websites perform are not real world tests (They usually use a file full of malware, I can say that probably 9 out of 10 people will never see any of them) and also MSE is designed to work with all the windows protection systems on... e.g Windows Firewall, and UAC, and in IE smart screen. Some of these testing websites have been known to turn them off.

NyaR said,
MSE has like 60% detection rates. Even Microsoft says you shouldn't use MSE.
For the average PC user, MSE isn't enough due to people lacking common sense. As long as you don't go to fishy websites, talk with strangers online, or whatnot, you should be fine.

That's exactly why I removed it quite a while ago now. Stupid PCFaster was always being found by Superantispyware as a PUP, when I had that installed, plus all the people's computers I had installed both those programs on would be calling me asking what the heck!

Might be an excellent AV, but when it wants to install crap without the slightest user notification, no thank you!

Been playing with Comodo Internet Security AV for a little while now and so far, doesn't seem to bad. At least I haven't found anything installed behind my back with it yet.
