I've never really looked past MSE pre-Windows 8, and I'm happily running Windows Defender in Windows 8. However, I don't like that it doesn't have a right click context menu option to scan a file or folder for viruses.
I'm tempted to open a Barclays account and put a pound in and just leave it there to get the free Kaspersky offering for my Mac

+1 This. It's very annoying that such a basic yet essential feature of any AV software is missing.

I read a rumour some where that the reason for this omission was to avoid anti-competitive lawsuits etc - But it's still annoying that it's missing! :P

Unfortunately this only works with folders and not individual files.

I know Microsoft Security Essentials and System Center Endpoint Protection only warn of infected files by default, AVG blocks access to the dubious files.
