Although I agree with you on how knowing what not to click on, download, etc. is good..
Isn't it possible to still get hacked/get a virus by even being on safe sites? Or even without getting on a browser and simply having an internet connection?

I'm just asking because I know it's possible, but what are the chances of any of that?

Very Rare. Most problems are from user stupidity. It's possible, but really why would a truly skilled person go through all that trouble just to get into your personal desktop? You can't get a virus just by being connected all by itself, they have to be initiated manually one way or another.

Occasionally legit sites do get attacked and used to transfer malware to their users, but even that is rare unless it's a shady site and even then your browser & even google have protection to block it. In the event you do contract a malware or ransomware, having an antivirus is usually useless because they are specifically designed to override & take control of them.

Having McAfee and Norton in your poll and no MSE is a fail poll.

I hate when people say brain. I remember there a virus going around that would infect a fresh XP install. Ever since, I install some kind of antivirus before I connect a new comp to the internet.

Yeah but if you don't have an anti-virus you don't know when you get a virus so therefor you never get any viruses.
