    There's no real need for one I think, I mean, if you know what you're doing and not downloading every single file offered online then you'll be fine. I can't remember the last time I had a computer infection. Still doesn't hurt to have a free one just in case something silly happens.

    Same here. Never needed any additional AV.
    Safe browsing is the key.

    Hi Mike, another Confucius says.
    By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and Third, by experience, which is the bitterest.

    I took the third..
    And it's been years.

    Fascinating, I've gone through the third option too (how bitter it was...).
