This is pretty much the answer you are looking for. Being virus free is 50% A/V programs and 50% common sense. I know people who don't use an A/V at all, just rely on common sense. I use MSE and have never had a warning from it, but it gives me some peace of mind when it sits there in the background.

the best AV is YOU...
6 years ago i wasnt using any AV, at all.... and in some cases, i had my os cleaner more than the guys that had the best av's....
so my recommendation would go to YOU, mse and maybe malwarebytes

I suggest getting the paid version of MalwareByte Anti Malware. Only the paid version has the background AV.

I use it, it is the best, non-invasive and most powerful out there.

Unless is a polymorphic file virus like Virut.
