Which antivirus is better Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast Home?

I'm currently using avast home and it hasn't given me any trouble. Recently I've heard of microsoft's free antivirus called security essentials and was wondering if it was any good compared to avast.

    MSE is fine with Windows 7 as the core is better protected. It does not work as well with WindowsXP.
