I've been using MSE now for about three weeks and overall i like it.It freezes on me sometimes when i manually update it which is probably three times a day! I also can't run anything else while it's updating or the computer will freeze so bad that i can't even open task manager to stop it.I have to push the reset button and reboot to bring it back to life.I have 2gig ram and a dual core processor.It's frustrating.Is this happening to anyone else? I have no other anti virus software running. I use malware bytes for a back up,but it only runs when i want it too.There should be no conflicts.If this keeps up I'll be going back to AVG.

i believe this is happening with most of the MSE users, ive seen similar posts. apparently there an update coming that will solve the update problem. you know how it goes, microsoft always make something then give it to the public and THEN realise oh oops we should have tested it further, haha. hang in there.
