  • Hell no. Why would I pay for a substandard service when I can get one that actually works for free?

  • AVG free and Lavasoft ad-ware blocker. I don't pay for it. Norton and McAfee are crap. They shut down my PC until I deleted them.

  • People still pay for AV and AM protection?

    I use Malwarebytes and Avira and have for years. I've never had a virus, ever.

    Just google free antivirus for students and you'll see pages like:
