@ Inspector Clouseau The corollary to what you say, is if you really don't need it, don't put it on your system, because its just another avenue of attack. This is particularly true for media players like Quicktime and Real Media. Its also pretty hard to identify which AV's protect online games (or whatever) particularly well. Not everyone has your sources of information. My guess would be the big names do real well on MS Office related stuff, as they are aimed at the mainstream customer.
