    Don't see a point of using AV with NoScript.

    You at least upload suspicious downloads to VirusTotal right?

    Anyways, I'm using a customized Avast.

    Microsoft products here - @ home and in the office - Windows Defender, Microsoft Security Essentials, System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection.

    On few machines of my relatives, MBAM is also installed - free version only for double checks two/three times per year.

    I only download from trusted sources. I don't do torrents anymore but if I did then VT sounds good. I also got MBAM Pro running.

    I'd be running no AV, but since Windows 8 built MSE in, I just let it run.

    Personally I value "staying the hell out of my way" from an AV more than anything else. I want to forget it exists.

    That means: No random issues with downloading files, installing programs, false positives, slowdowns in performance, etc, etc. No other AV has let me do that other than MSE, so I let it sit in the background as a "backup" system.

    Every once in a while I get intrigued by something else. I investigate then stay put with Avira. If it ain't broken........

    I'm using mostly Avast 6 and Avira (on demand) for a second opinion.
