    VIPRE and MBAM Pro.
    I think it was a good call including MBAM in the poll, mattdocs.

    Bitdefender on Windows and Android - hard to argue with their features, esp. their banking protection, and results.

    Thanks. I am curious how many people use MBAM in relation to regular AV software.

    Many. It can be unofficially considered as a must have for most people. MBAM, be it real-time or just on-demand, will almost always be paired with their AV of choice. I used to think like that too, up until it flags my settings. But aside of that, I have proven it to be able to detect malware which can't be detected by your main AV. So I'd say it's sensible to have it if you're using the mainstream security setup.

    First vote for EAM. :D

    I propose that in the next poll EAM should be banned in the available choices! :D

    Nah, joking lol. If I was using an AV, I probably will pick EAM too. Either that, or Avira Free.

    Avast, WSA, and MBAM Pro in the near future until giveaway licenses expire. Then I would try out Immunet Protect.

    I do it cause I can without issues. Malware is blocked by one of them in this order: MBAM IP Blocking > Avast HTTP scanner > WSA web filtering > Avast real-time > WSA real-time > MBAM on-execution.

    I'm using Windows 7 as an administrator with no antivirus installed, Windows Defender disabled, UAC disabled, and only the form or real time protection coming from Windows Firewall.

    While I'm not protected against threats, I do not think I'll be infected anytime soon.

    When I find an antivirus light enough I will start using an AV again. Until then, I'll stay unprotected.

    Bitdefender AV+ 2014 & MBAM Pro on desktop & no AV at all on my Galaxy S3 as it not needed & would just use resources, despite what the AV companies say there is no malware apocalypse in Android :)

    Very happy with it.

    Wow a quarter of the people don't use AV on at least one PC. Pretty interesting! Lets see if this poll is gonna beat the other ones. Usually the number is no more than 12%. Is this a new trend among Wilders? :)
