360 and Microsoft Security Essentials
Can I have 360 and Microsoft Security Essentials (Windows Firewall and Defender are not installed) running at the same time? Currently, I am doing so and have not experienced any problems.
The reason I am doing so is that 360 scan of download did not catch Trojan and running 360 scans on entire system did not detect it even after my system started having problems. I shut off 360, installed Microsoft Essentials and when I ran a scan it found the the trojan and removed it. Needless to say, I'm not thrilled about just relying on 360. Nor was I thrilled w/ Symantec trying to charge me $99 I to 'fix' the problem.
Something similar happened a few years ago, and at that time the tech rep I spoke with on the phone tried to pressure me into paying $99 by saying that I wouldn have trouble resolving the issue myself. I did some searches on google and was able to find a free solution online. (I can't remember if I found the info on the Microsoft site or the Symantec site).
