I've been running my company on MSE/FEP/Defender for the past 6 years with zero headaches caused by the anti-virus software itself and an infection rate of maybe 5 or 6 per year across 200 PC and laptops. Users have local admin rights. Perimeter IDS catches some things that get through.

It seems to work better than any other anti-virus I've used and I hate them all. It's certainly the least annoying.

... that they release this about two weeks after I'd given up and ported my GV # away. I had put up with years of MMS/SMS frustration. They must have changed their default SMS app three or four times. All my contacts had two #s for me despite me trying to do everything I possibly could to prevent that. Porting to T-mobile was such a nightmare experience (5 days, 3 hours on the phone, 2 visits to store (avoid the stores)) that I'm hesitant to port it back.

Guess I'll just get a new GV # and see if it is really going to be worth it. Can't say I really trust Google not to fuck it up (or change it often enough to be irritating) again.
