Did you ever buy an antivirus?

Recommended Posts

Most people prefer free antivirus solutions, such as the free versions of AVG and Avira. Others prefer to use cracked versions of the paid antiviruses, such as Kaspersky and Norton. I was wondering: have you ever paid for an antivirus? Have you ever purchased the licensed version of an antivirus for your computer?

I'm running a licensed version of MalwareByts on my computer. It's kinda necessary for the work I do here, and others, too.

I just bought a licence for bitdefender total security 2016 3pc 2y. for 7$ on ebay, this days you can buy licenses for a few bucks, just need to know where to look for it, also often you can get good antivirus software for free with long trial period 9mon., 1 y., ect. on various promotions.

I'm running Windows Defender! So no I don't need paid security.

If Windows Defender was that good, everyone would use it.

Like some paid antivirus are good? ESET released today an emergency patch because it marked some systemfiles as false positive.

And with the right networking setup and firewall setup you can come pretty far without expensive packages.

you also mentioned some antivirus comp. name in your topic peace

i personally use paid av products because you can't risk your privacy and data by depending on free av products as their protections are very low (lowest) from paid products.

I've always had MalwareBytes, quite frankly never bought them though (as I would use a cracked key from them if I needed to here-and-there, would restart if necessary etc.) and have always had luck it seems with them; love them.

I never brought it I ended up get 5 lisences for Norton that I gave away. Got 3 lisences for Symantec Endpoint (That was ok back in the day)

Then again I beta tested Panda Cloud and got a free Pro versions due that i gave alot of feedback! :)

 

Now I stick to NOTHING, yeah that simple. Nothing Windows Defender built in and a firewall. I kind of figured that its not needed as i normally run with alot of scripts and blocks.

Most malware, and virus these days are built to attack your browser, and the plugins you use (90% is the plugins like java, flash, shockwave etc)

Having denial of js, iframes and of course any 3rd party loading scripts (Disconnect)

Add this on top with sandbox for running my cracks and keygens :angelic:pirate-smiley.png should protect most of it.

Then again I ONLY run in Windows when I play games the rest i am running on Linux! SmokeWeed

Nope. I love using my 360 Total Security. It's operates good and comes with GlassWire fireware for free! Haven't had a virus since.
