    Windows Defender + the following:

    [*]No sketchy websites

    [*]No sketchy downloads

    [*]Semi-regular checks of task manager to ensure no sketchy processes

    [*]Semi-regular check of Chrome extensions to ensure no sketchy addons

    [*]Adblock, adblock, adblock. Seriously.



    The only thing I picked up in years has been adware addons, and generally only after I take pity on sites I like and disable my adblocker. My brother uses 360 Total Security, but sketchy websites may as well be his middle name. x_x

    Pretty solid protection there. I totally forgot to mention Adblock, which is a must have of course.

    Eh, some would disagree. But really, ads are the biggest worry when you're not much of a downloader. I know a lot of sites rely on them for the income to keep running, but seriously. They aren't worth the risk to unblock anymore.

    Agreed, popup ads can slow down a computer or even cause crashes and loss of data.


    I've been personally using Windows Defender for years and never had any problems with it, I just wanted something with more features, that's why I got 360.

    Never heard of 360. I used to have a paid antivirus, but it expired, and ever since then I've been making do with Malwarebytes and Windows Defender. It's free and pretty nice, though some features are premium.

    I would use anything but Norton or Webroot.


    Those two kill viruses, by acting like viruses and slow computer down (especially Norton). 


    When my old computer got 10% faster after I uninstalled Norton, I dropped that antivirus right in the trash (well recycle bin).
