    I've used Norton, MacAffee, MS - all did not do the job for me until Kaspersky.
    Kaspersky has been the best AV I've ever used and I have never been disappointed.

    Cool... thank for the replies.
    I know people that have had good luck with Avast.

    I'm not opposed to paying for a good protection program.
    And I don't visit or randomly click on things.

    But I am into crypto-currency trading,
    so therein lies my concern.

    I would be wary of Kaspersky.
    Too many ties to Russian meddling...

    I don't mean to hijack, but what do you Mac users use?

    I just literally bought a new Macbook and it's still virgin / unmolested. I'll need Java though for Android Studio programming and always do everything on a 2nd 'Standard User' account.

    Not a thing. Two Macbooks and two iMacs, not a Virus to be had. I've been using Macs for almost 10 years and I have never had a Virus.

    I've also been using Windows computers for decades and have yet to get one virus there too. :shrug: I have no idea what you guys click on to get viruses.

    I scan my computers about every three months. Nada. Zippo, Zilch. Starting to think Anti-virus software is a money grab.

    well, I'm no Saint, so....

    I would normally say that Viruses are a myth but I've seen a lot of co-workers, friends, and enemies with shredded computers because of them. I just haven't been struck yet.

    There are some polymorphic retroviruses that will change traits when new virus definitions come out. Those are the tricky ones.
