Sigh *puts on flame suit*

I see no logic in this.

Being "smart enough" is simply not "enough" anymore

How do you know you don't have a virus if you have nothing installed to detect them?


You can still be smart about it and still run a lightweight av + Malwarebytes PRO ( for website blocking)

That, to me, is truly "smart enough" tbh

its better than nothing.

and nod32 is easy to bypass by finding and editing the detected offsets

avg sucks as well
