Well for the heck of it I did a complete Scan yesterday afternoon. 1.57 hrs. Nothing. Bitdefender. Win7. I do not think I will do that again this year.

Latest Avast free version, all shields on, running in the background. Specific scan when there is a problem. In such case I have turned to Kaspersky online scan.

Sandboxie if I cannot find an alternative for shit that triggers a false positive alert.

I do a full scan almost yearly, i don't remember to have had ever a virus on my PC. Shadow Defender is doing a great job, i always stay in shadow mode when browsing the internet.
