<rant>

that's a long-standing "debate" in our household - whether antivirus programs are even "worth" using up precious 'resources'

i do *NOT* run antivirus programs and i haven't been "hit" with a virus in over twenty YEARS because i "practice safe hex" instead

gotta love when the relatives ask "how do you get that old machine to run so FAST, mine is a decade NEWER and is nowhere near that FAST?"

"easy, you're running <insert name here>, you have a multi-core processor but your bottleneck is a single-thread-processing antivirus program that all of your 'reads' need to pass through like a funnel"

and the irony is, i'm the one called in to FIX their computers, the ones that run antivirus programs, when they get HIT with a "zero-day" virus that their [email protected] antivirus program did NOTHING to prevent
