Re: From what I see of malicious attacks...
In that case why isn't everyone using Comodo? Oh yes..its no better or worse on average than any other AV solution.
I'll say it again....they all get beat.
As to my advice about not using AV, I would always recommend a user use some form of AV. However, real world experience shows if you are going to get hit, no matter what steps you take you'll get hit. It's luck of the draw.
Plus often its just quicker for the experienced user to rebuild/ghost their build back than spend hours scanning it for malware. Get hit, wipe and reinstall. So in theory for some users who understand the risks, AV might well be a waste of time.
Choice is yours.
