Used to do that, use my gaming rig for online, then realized that it wasn't possible to keep it clean and still run games.

Switched to Linux for online and haven't had to format the game rig ever since.

Yes, the things that others think, say, or do will sometimes hurt you— until they do
not anymore.What will get you from here to there most quickly is total honesty—
being willing to assert, acknowledge, and declare exactly how you feel about a thing.
Say your truth—kindly, but fully and completely. Live your truth, gently, but totally
and consistently. Change your truth easily and quickly when your experience brings
you new clarity.-God

Re: What do you use for antivirus?
Norton appears, in my experience, to be the best at actually detecting new threats, however, it also appears to be the most resource hungry.

I've not seen many machines infected that are using avast (Smaller user base I guess), however, AVG is notoriously crap.

Microsoft security essentials isn't too bad, although i've seen machines infected while running this too.

The best way to remove infections I find is using the free version of malwarebytes. I've not tried the paid version but if I was seriously considering a decent antivirus subscription, this is the one I would go for.

Failing that hitmanpro.

Did you have to rebuild your rig when you went linux? My little bro sent me a link about it that showed a crazy setup was needed for gaming on linux. It was a steam link if that helps.

Or maybe it was a HUGE hard drive needed and i use SSD for everything so it skeered me away.

My subscription to Norton has run out and i didnt want to buy another if i didnt have to. Ive tried AVG in the past but for some reason i remember not liking it. I need something that wont run crap in the background since my PC is also my gaming rig.

So... What do you use?
 Quoting: Evil Mechanic




Malwarebytes, it's free and works. Adaware also free. advast also free. Webroot is not to bad if you feel you must pay for something. I also run a commodo firewall which helps keep out the bugs and is free. You can dl that at cnet.com. If you have windows 7 and up it comes with windows defender which is crap, but it's antivirus.

I use webroot. [link to www.webroot.com]
I also run Malwarebyte [link to www.malwarebytes.org (secure)]
and ccleaner. [link to www.piriform.com (secure)]
regularly.
I game with this machine as well as surf the web. Does not slow down from the webroot, and the malwarebytes and ccleaner run fairly fast.
The webroot is a paid software package. But the Malwarebytes and CCleaner are available for free.

For humans, Selenium. The best form of Selenium as an antiviral/anticancer is Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine. This according Dr. Richard Passwater PHD, the Godfather of Selenium research.

COMODO. Anti-virus as well as their firewall. Stops the shit dead in it's tracks. Also, no-script and Ghostery as an add-on.

But it runs in the background like a crazy mofo. I really don't recommend if you don't want your computer slowing down during critical play time.
