¿Does antivirus Microsft securyti essencial work on Opera?

  • Hi, I was looking for help for a friend of me that got a notebook with win 8.0 OS that unistall norton antivirus so I said that use microsotf secure essensial (MSE) but he couldnot install so Ifound another that he installed wel AVG. I sew that AVG antivirus has compatibility with some browsers but no opera.... so I was thinking abuout the compatiblity about opera in my MS 7 OS... I yes use MSE on seven OS, but I don't know if MSE works on opera browser?
    Is there a safe-test webpage to test the compatibility?
    Thanks!

  • Afaik MSE works by checking files that are opened and/or created, so i think it works with all programs.

  • he couldnot install

    MSE is a built-in part of Windows 8 and newer. It's working as a default system protection just like IE works as default browser.

    MSE works on opera browser?

    Yes, it's working totally fine.
    I'm exclusively using built-in security in 8, 8.1 and now 10 and never had a single problem with it.

  • Jazei, were you not kidding about AVG?

  • MSE is a built-in part of Windows 8 and newer.

    Win8 and newer uses Windows Defender, don't? Altought they (MSE and Windows Defender) are basically the same thing.

    Same here.

    There have been a number of reports that AVG has not played well with Opera, at least in the past. I know it was definitely an issue reported with Presto Opera at times. The problem seems to be episodic in time... that is, there will be spells when users report it, and periods when they don't. Usually it seems to have to do with over-aggressive heuristic detections of behavior or with a "bad" set of signature updates. There are also some other anti-malware software that seem to create Opera problems or peculiarities, Vipre being one of them.
