I've moved all my home PC's to use it now. Work forces McAfee and unfortunately they don't update the patches as quickly so makes for fun times with the little bugs that are addressed in future patches. Hope to become a contributor so I can get access earlier :)

I installed it on my work PC along with other stuff loaded by IT in hope of getting extra layer of protection. So far it's being working just fine. Almost maintenance free. Fair performer in the anti-virus contest.

Quite right.  It has a vast signature list and I have also run it along side other all-in-one security products with minimal interference.

Avast is the great antivirus software. I am also using this since long time.

every time I manually update MSE (because I use Windows Firewall with Advanced Security on Vista to prevent automatic software update while I'm online), it tells me that connection failed. Although it seems successfully updated

but anyway, I have plan to use McAfee VirusScan Enterprise on Vista and a virtual OS on it (Windows 2000)

Do you consider it as a good enough AV?

IMO, right now We have much better FREE alternatives (Avira, AVG, Avast, Panda...) than MSE. ;)
