How many of you here do not use any protection at all?
I have not used any protection for the passed 4 years, and my PC %100 free of any infections.
Avast (one of several anti-malware tools that I run in the background) just popped up with its monthly summary report. It says that my system itself is clean, but the following is both disturbing and encouraging. This is just for Avast; I haven't looked lately at what the others may have blocked. This on a system that is behind a router, with NAT and a firewall.
