And I hope you meant "Malwarebytes", because "Malware" means "Virus".
Going to have to agree with this. It's been known for years that Mac viruses weren't as common as viruses made for Windows, and it's causing people to develop more viruses for Macs just for fun I'm sure. And maybe even a Linux OS if you have one should have an antivirus on it if you want to be safe.

That's exactly how my parents are. They use Norton, and I really wished they would change away from that **** because for one, I've caught viruses with Norton on my computer in the past that couldn't be removed, and ever since I've switched to Microsoft Security Essentials, I've been able to remove all viruses. Not only is MSE free from Microsoft, but you also don't have to uninstall it and reinstall the new version every year.

Norton gives its free users viruses so they'll buy the paid version o.o

My parents used to be like that too, but since they know/knew I'm the real expert in terms of Computers, I started to take decisions about what had to happen to all of our Computers (except for siblings, they're a different subject).
But today, I'm managing Computers of my mother, as well as all of my family who lives in Poland.

Like:
Me: "I want to install Team Viewer on your PC".
They: "What does it do"?
Me: "I'll be able to help you on a distant, thanks to this".
They: "Great, install it"!

I use Avast!, and I have for a while. I can't say I know much about which program is the best or anything, but my cousin suggested I get it, and it hasn't let me down thus far.

I'm using Avast and have been for years. It's never really failed me, so why switch?

i am using avast from the time i had a computer. Its a amazing antvirus for free. I download it and also had it registered and now its working great. not a single virus can stand a chance against avast. my computer is secured with walls so virus can't get a chance to attack the computer. i have amd athlon with AMD graphics card. there are lot of virus in internet. And many virus also attacking our computers. So i prefer to have avast. i tought total K7 security was good but later i get a extremely bad review of it. so i avoid it. Now my windows 7 ultimate is save and secure.

ESET Nod32 with Malwarebytes as an on-demand scanner.
I'd swear by this setup.
I also have EMET setup for anything that connects to the internet basically.

AVG. Used Avast on my old computer, however it was annoying me when i open unknown programs (like emulators), so i had to change for a better one. So that's why i am currently using AVG.
