What antivirus do you run?


#1

Hello all. My subscription to Norton just ran out and I have heard I “don’t need that shit” from a lot of people. I’m running windows 7 and feel scared now, but I have no protection. What do you guys run to keep your rig safe?


#2

None. Read this thread starting here:

But I’m on Windows 7. Is it the same principle?


#4

I found my answer. I guess you said to read the thread because it actually has all the answers already. Kids these days they want everything handed to them.


#5

Why would you do such a thing?


#6

Because I hate change. Windows 7 is comfortable and I still believe that 8 is terrible even though I know that 8.1 was supposed to fix things.


#7

I’m in the same boat. I was disgusted when I saw it the first time. My computer is not a touch screen and should not have it’s OS. I think it’s been fixed, but I’m old and stuck in my ways now.


#8

Hating change is a valid excuse for not updating. In my opinion, the OS on its features and merits is not. 8.1 is a superior OS is just about every measurable way.

Windows 10 is probably further improvement, as far as what I’ve tested so far.


#9

I’m on board to upgrade to Windows 10. I want to give them some time before switching though.


#10

I have this icon on my task bar telling me to Get Windows 10. I’m just waiting for that right moment.


#11

This may be true, but much like with Vista it was not the case for long enough into the OS’ cycle that I was content to just wait it out for 10 :wink:


#12

I can dig that.


#13

I disinfect my own PC


#14

I run F-Secure SAFE, on both my win 7 machine and macbook pro, (Phone too!) It’s light weight, and has a few features like locking out other websites when banking. ( it kills the connection completely.) between that and malwarebytes I’m feeling pretty good. I would like to trust microsoft, but MSE burned me a few times, and I don’t like fixing stuff that should have been protected.
