Windows security essentials. (edit: I guess its called MSE)

- it runs on a very low level within the operating system
- works well enough
- it's not obnoxious and I barely notice it's there.


I think it's free too.

Brain. It's pretty effective.

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?

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.

You run malwarebytes every once and a while just to check.

Not that hard. Haven't had a virus in years.

MSE on laptop with Windows 7, Avira on Desktop with Windows XP.
I'm planning to dump Avira one day.

Windows Defender isn't MSE built into W8, it's the anti-malware side of MSE built into W7/8. MSE adds anti-virus into Windows Defender.

And MSE. Because having the most popular anti-virus in the poll as "Other" is just silly.
