I don't know if I would trust WD. I have worked on several PCs recently that were running WSE and they were full of Malware. One of the infections had disabled WSE silently and then the PC was wide open for whatever wanted to come down. Hopefully Win 8 is different enough that it doesn't have the same exploitable weaknesses that Win 7 has.

Which scanner did you use to find the malware that Security Essentials missed? Is it free?
