    Wow, you're an antivirus. Must be cool to be you. :)

    I use Antivirus on my windows box because it's free, not intrusive, and other people use that computer. I mean i usually trust just being smart about it, and using FF with NoScript and AdBlock. But what if the site i go to has been cracked and the cracker has malicious intent. Antivirus software is a level of protection in the event that trust fails.
