I think I have Spybot and Malwarebytes on this computer. I guess I am getting lazy, I need to manually run both of them, and make sure nothing got missed, which tends to happen when you rely on automated software that cant run like it supposed too when the computer is off at 4am in the morning, so far, I have no complaints using either Spybot or Malwarebytes, and has since done a pretty good job thus far.

I've got Malwarebytes on mine and I think it's doing okay. I seldom use my pc or laptop nowadays, I like using my smartphone and my tablet because I can use it lying down.

I do not a fan of using any type of phone to surf the internet, however, I think I will be installing AVG tomorrow, since It was recently brought to my attention that Malwarebytes is for scanning for malware, and I guess that does make sense, ROFL, and I will use the AVG free version, if it is still free.

I've been using AVG antivirus for more than a decade and I have never had any problems with it. I don't really think I will ever change my mind.

It is always wise to keep your windows up to date even if you have an anti-virus. There are other malwares that have found ways to bypass Windows’ built-in security features, that is why Microsoft gives regular updates every week. I also feel like I should add that your Window's built-in 'firewall' should always be on just to be on the safe side.

This is actually true what you said about some malwares finding a ways to bypass Windows’ built-in security features, so therefore it's very important to have one's computer system windows always updated. I have set my system to automatically update without needed my approval. This way I know that everything is under control and I wouldn't have any issues of malwares.
