Now that you mention it, I'm running Malwarebytes right now. I don't run any virus scans.

Hitman Pro runs whenever i restart my computer, which isn't often. Other than that, only when I notice something might be wrong.

Don't get a lot of maleware, but there is an influx of femaleware I've noticed.
I am not economically viable.

Only time I ever run is when I know something is wrong. Which hasn't been for probably 5+ years.

I run MSE once a night on a schedule and MBAM only if I think something is wrong.
Shut your BF28/9 sound hole and listen up.

My computer defrags and virus scans automatically every tuesday morning (4:00 AM). I started that schedule back when I played WoW since it fell in the middle of server maintenance and I'd likely be asleep anyway. Haven't played in years but I don't have any reason to change it since it's never been intrusive.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

I leave a different one running every time I leave my house. Most of the time I leave at least 6 or 7 days out of the week, so pretty much daily. I have like 8 different security programs I alternate out to scan with to make sure nothing gets missed
