    Preventing viruses is all about safe browsing. If you get viruses you are a dolt.

    most current "viruses" today are really worms and trojans that affect the shell and applications because the OS kernels are somewhat (windows, not so much.) resistant to code that messes with them. those come from malware and questionable websites with infected binary (eg. images) files. malwarebytes already handles those better than anything else.

    Avg is better than Microsoft IMO. Avg found some stuff that Microsoft missed when I switched. I use the free edition on one and the paid one on the other. I haven't seen any advantage in paying yet.

    You're fine with just defender. Run malwarebytes once in a while.
