Do you need those high gualyti antivirus software,the software is reclamed everywhere,but either when you buy the software you realyze that you thrown away alot of money because.The software eithe doesnt protect you so good as it said,or its not well programed and eats a lot of your compiuter resources,so you need a super pc to run it.Wouldnt the better way from this situation to protect your pc by yourself?Its prety simple just-you need to know some good rules.Dont go on unknown sites.Dont download files from unknows sites etc. its efectyve.I tested it-i ran my pc without antivirus for 1month and got like ~1 ~2 adware at all.Its oly my opinion,i dont say that u must uninstal your antivirus software.Just wouldnt it be beter to protect by yourself,what do you think?

And the next time something like Redworm or Blaster or anything else that spreads by background processes and broadcast network packets hits, you can be part of the worldwide pandemic! I'm also betting you are more infected than you think--- Many adware and virus infections sit in the background and just process. Look at the guy who was just arrested for using other peoples computers for spamming. He had over a million machines infected and sending spam for him with the owners of the machine none the wiser. It does not require a super machine to run decent virus protection, or adware protection either. Your resources are tanking either because you picked one that is a resource hog (and then claiming they all are) or you have a poorly tuned computer. I really hope noone takes your example too seriously as that is as dangerous as it gets these days. (And this is from an IT Professional who has 17 years of experience in the industry.)

You shouldn't pay for virus protection, there are lots of free programs for personal use. Better yet: If you use a (free) linux system you don't have to worry about computer viruses as they are a Microsoft Windows related problem. I'm using the very user friendly Ubuntu linux.

I totally agree with you, all the antivirus are a fake that it only is useful for get money from noobs who actually think that they have a great antivirus I worked in a company that have a famous and expensive antivirus but don't works for many rally destructive virus I had to delete them manually from the registry and from the hard disk, actually I am not using any antivirus intead it I have a image of my whole operating system and everyday I rewrite the hard disk with this image. by the way I save my files in another partition, another thing are the false warnings I have a lot of people who call me and said I have a virus, when I ask what happened to the computer they said nothing but there is a warning and a lot of times it is just thing like their own code in html or c++.
