I guess it depends on what you want or need. Some Linux users use AV but when I have spoken to Linux users on other boards a lot of them do not.

I have never seen a windows machine even from the shop directly not have AV or AM on or some sort of protection. I read then 90% of malware is engineered for Windows systems and I also do not trust M$ . Personally I think the NSA is so far up them especially were Windows 10 is you are trusting you digital online life with an unknown entity.

Same with FB, Windows 10 and FB puts my head in a spin. I struggle to grasp the implications and how most Joe public operate.

I couldn't I just couldn't.
But they sometimes pop-up alerts from perfectly normal sites lol. Even with the security level on lower.

I agree with what you said about windows 10 and FB. They also mess up your computer on the updater.

I will recommend you to use Windows Defender free antivirus software its really great antivirus software for me. Since I'm using 3 years never got any issue still works perfectly for me. You will get this software by default in your Windows 8 or 10.
