Be smart about your internet usage and you don't need one no matter what OS you use.

Feeling safe because you're in a minority doesn't mean you're actually safe. It just means you're less likely to get hit, but when it happens, it will probably be worse because of your complacency.

I use Avast and Comodo to protect my computer and Auslogics Disk Defrag, Malwarebytes, and CCleaner to keep it running smoothly. I've never had any problems.

I ended up doing some more research on this after all of the good words. I now have it and everything seems to be fine! A couple of other people use my laptop from time to time, and their knowledge of the internets is below par. I feared more for their usage than my own.
It appears everything runs smoother now as well. I think Norton is just too big. It is now gone! ;-D

I've been using this for like a year. Never had a problem.

I use AVG. I haven't had a virus and I don't notice it's even running on my computer so I wouldn't ever try switching to something else.

Was using this too and had a virus still get me. Switched over to Microsoft Security.
