    Its always good to have an Antivirus no matter what you do.
    For the l33t sk1d, do you want a free or a paid Antivirus ? What are your computer specs ?

    I think you forgot that Malwarebytes is an Antimalware, not an Antivirus.

    You got it all wrong, it's the total opposite.

    AVG is cancer, swap it for another free Antivirus.
    If you paid for it, keep it until the licence expires but don't renew it.

    Just a simple anti virus that does the work.

    avast!, Avira, Panda Cloud or Qihoo 360 IS. My favorites are avast! and Avira, but it's your call in the end.

    If you got common sense, MlawareBytes & Windows Defender should be enough.
    Although Norton Internet Security comes with a pretty useful rootkit scanner & remover.
    Downside with Norton is the spammy shit it brings along.

    Downside with Norton is that it's shit overall.
    And Windows Defender is more of an Antimalware rather than an Antivirus. Plus it's only available in Windows 8 and above.

    Which is why MalwareBytes & WD is a good combo.
    Add in Norton or any other spammy AV if you lack common sense.

    Your good combo is to use two Antimalware instead of one Antivirus and one Antimalware ? Doesn't make sense.
    An Antivirus won't replace common sense.

    I'd include a somewhat new, but fantastic Antivirus called 360 Total Security. I use it daily and it has some great features all for free!
