Very rarely. Last time I did it, it was after a year and it showed nothing.
Avast has a nifty extension for all commonly used browsers which blocks malicious sites. Very helpful when browsing through torrent sites.
Then I have Malwarebytes, but I seldom use it, and it's not really useful because the free version doesn't run in the background and thus doesn't intercept malware.
Keep note that antivirus programs tend to be overzealous and show lots of false positives. This happens a lot with NoCD cracks and certain utilities which make use of suspicious, albeit harmless, code. Usually, an infected executable is pretty obvious to spot.
"The Master Ball is the ultimate Poké Ball. It will unfailingly catch any Pokémon in the wild. But it is not anything that I require. Unlike you Trainers, I do not make Pokémon my friends or partners. Unlike other Team Galactic members, I don't use Pokémon as tools. Instead, I make the power of Pokémon my own."
