Hmm With Due respect , Please go back and read my posts again. I did mention that i do use online virus scanners, I have just not installed an AV on my system ever. "Been computing since 1997 and never installed an AV" I never advised any one to stop using AV , I was only talking about installing an AV and leaving it on 24/7. Another line from my previous post "There are other and better ways of making your PC more secure and stable then just relying on AV and leaving it on 24/7 thinking you’re safe. " Keywords " then just relying on AV "
