Your lucky never having a virus or having an intrusion attack on you computer , They are everywhere online - I was on BING, and I typed in search bar, Emperor Chair (gaming desk set up that's absolutely epic) then clicked on images , when I selected a picture of the item I was looking for my Norton security flashed up with a warning straight away that it has just stopped a high risk intrusion attack on my PC . The people who try to hack you will have an easy time if you got no protection and you wouldn't even know your infected.
even if you download a freebie , something is better than nothing ,it doesn't matter what security company you go with.
Personally I will gladly part with £20 a year to know I'm safe.

Try MSE(Microsoft Security Essentials), it's free to Windows user's and it really works!

At least it works for me, I have never had a problem with a virus.

We're in the same boat. McAfee was a pile of steaming bloat-ware I'm so glad it's gone. I picked up Kaspersky, people have said that it's resource use is low compared to Norton and McAfee.
I have no experience with it other than reviews but so far I really like it, gaming while it does a full system scan, no lag or CPU stress, still got the scan done in good time.

I also run Spybot Search & Destroy occasionally and that seems to pick up a few little bits and pieces.

AVG free edition is what I have been using for quite some time. I plan on downloading AVG on my M17x r4 once the McAfee free subscription runs out.

I agree with BlackJair.....I have found Microsoft Security Essentials to be really good. It is not bloated and doesn't appear to have a large footprint. I have tried a number of others but have had the least issues with Microsoft.

Working in the industry I know how important antivirus is and haven't had a virus, touch wood, in years......
