The best antivirus, is yourself.
Just don't open suspicious e-mails and webs, and stay away from porno sites, and images.
I'm using webroot secure anywhere, fast scan and use low resource, also a silent gaming mode...

This is impossible due to websites running scripts to view it, viruses can attach themselfs to theses files to view specific pages which infect your drives.

For laptops yes but on desktop computer I like more Bitdefender Antivirus Plus is 1 TOP AV and I like it thumb.gif

On desktop computer I have now up to 3 TB files and Bitdefender Antivirus Plus do the job very good. I only use AV and Advanced System and nothing else.

Will be good to use any other program to or is ok ?

So is it best to use Avast alone, or in combo with another program like, Malwarebytes?
