Any decent malware is mostly drive-by and unnoticed.
Oh god this^^^ Anyone not running AV on a PC is asking from trouble.
And to the people who say they have been running no AV for years, and never had a problem... That is a problem in itself, you have no idea what you computer is infected with, I bet if they installed something and ran a scan there would be countless detections...

I don't recall there to ever be a time when I had a virus/foreign computer problem.
You shouldn't have AVG and MSE installed at the same time.... And as for no detections, I find that hard to believe, not even cookies from visiting websites?

And that 00.01% that an AV would stop and you cant control is whats going to or could already be screwing you over...Edited by L D4WG - 7/15/12 at 9:01pm
