Seriously, why does anyone pay for anti-virus software these days?

Why have an anti virus, just have a half decent firewall, and don't be a retard.

MSE is fail

>>47151808
I paid 0.5$ for 1 year of malware bytes.

Im fine with paying 0.5$.
>>
>>47153057

the fuck is 0.5$

what's wrong with you?

IS IT FUCKING 50 CENTS? WHY NOT JUST FUCKING WRITE IT? YOU HUGE FUCKING FAGGOT

god I hate you

MSE is deprecated

>>47151808
>using an AV by company who "sabotaged" (kind of hard since they are all useless anyway) the quality of their AV to protect their "software alliances" with companies like Symantec et al.

hell even using windows is just bad enough; but still AV is useless garbage and you're a fucking moron if you install that shit.
>>
>>47152826
Now look at the PDF of the actual results, MSE is only behind the others by 15-20%, which isn't that bad considering it's free

But they've skewed the rating systems, probably because they're being paid off, which doesn't make them trustworthy
>>
>>47151988
>>47152098

because theres browser zero days like once a month and once a week if you have flash installed. you really know nothing about malware if you think the only way to get it is through running sketchy executables.
>>
>proprietary "security" software

You can't be this stupid.
>>
>>47153152
Don't use IE
>>
>>47153152
and AV isn't going to save you from zero day dipshit.

only the developers of the vulnerable software can save you. jesus fuck.

also

Use malwarebytes antiexploit
>>
>>47153152
Running adblock, flash on click-to-activate and not using an admin account will block 99% of these exploits
>>
>Thinking you're safe if you don't run sketchy exes
It's really worrying how many of you think this
>>
>>47153132
>"only" 20%
>>
>>47153471
And they give it 0/5 start? Shouldn't a star be 20%?

Also it gets 0 false positives in any category but doesn't score 5/5 on false positives? While other software that does score false positives gets a higher rating?

I'm not saying 20% isn't shit, it is, but AV-Test is being paid for scores pretty much guaranteed
>>
>>47153455
>thinking you're safe with an antivirus
It's really worrying how many of you think this
>>
>>47153515
Not safe. More safe
>>
has anyone used QIHOO total security.

Its free, scores incredibly high on antivirus testing.

But its chinese.
>>
>>47153628
I'm sure that adding more software, which means adding more attack vectors, will fix the security issues!
