Here's the way I try and protect my computer.
I shut it down completely overnight.
When I boot up, I go through my e-mails.
Next, run a scan of CCleaner PRO.
Next, I update MBAM Pro and run a scan.
Next, I update MSE through the control panel and
finally, run a scan of MSE.
I do this all in the same order several times a day.
No problems, so far. This takes 10 minutes or less.
If anything is on the tube, then I leave my computer running so it can run its SSD clean up.
About once a week I download and run a full scan of Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool on weekends.
It seems like a lot to do but it actually takes very little time and it makes me feel safe.
I don't feel safe with Norton A/V or any of the others.
So far, my little system has worked for me. Microsoft will take care of MSE. It always has since it's one of the most used programs that they put out.

I haven't installed an anti-virus program for over 2 years now. I have a 2 scanners that I run maybe once a week just to make sure I didn't get anything and always come up clean. I guess it helps I stay off any shady websites and rarely use email. My gaming pc is always clean!

Combine it a back firewall topology with DMZs and massive lockdown policy wise within these programs and firewalls. Using password managers and random password generators as well. Almost forgot keystroke encryption as well via say Zemana,

I could easily make my system ultra lockdown, but that takes work and really, no need as I have all my sensitive data sorted security wise.

Doing this is like treating your STD with nasty creams instead of using a condom in the first place. Also as stated, the sooner the 'dodgy websites' myth goes away, the better.

Question: Why are people settling with an inferior product for the same price again?
Don't worry, I prefer the 90% success bomb detector over the 97-99% one. That's essentially it.

The ill-logic of some people of 'It doesn't detect it, therefore it's not there' is baffling.

The biggest thing really is zero-day stuff and well, MSE fails. Badly.

Wow you do that multiple times a day? That's crazy. I rarely run scans and just have MSE running.. I was actually about to install avast. What you are doing is complete over kill unless you go the slums of the internet everyday lol

Really, what part of 'malware does not exist only on dodgy websites' anymore don't people get?

Why do people make silly simile's to illustrate a point with computers? Going off your comparison, not all STD's are protected by a condom, so therefore not all PC's are 100% protected with an A/V. The best method for not contracting an STD is to abstain, exactly what I do with my PC tongue.gif. You see how silly that sounds?

I don't have a virus on my PC because I practice something like abstaining; I don't go on malicious web sites first and foremost. And by the off chance that I sub-consciously do, I have firefox with Noscript, Adblock Plus and BetterPrivacy. I run Spyware Blaster and Spybot to update the passive protection and I periodically run MBAM just in case. With safe browsing habits and just plain common sense, I have not had a virus in 5 years with this type of combo, without a formal A/V solution.
