I don't care if MSE is or isn't the best. It may have more signatures BUT let my submit this to you:
Say hypothetically MSE has 100,000 signatures and Avira has 95,000.
MSE has more signatures now BUT who is to say they have all the same ones as Avira?
There can still be some virus that Avira will block that MSE won't. It will always be like this because no company can block everything using signatures.
MSE could be the best but it all boils down to that one day when you stumble across the "new virus" right as it comes out. Will you be protected enough?
