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.

I use Avast,never had any problems and i don't know how to uninstall it anyway.

Maybe i'll use MSE next time i format the PC.

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 (MSE built into W8) + Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free

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.
