    Added Bitdefender Free. Blazing fast!

    Edit: Apologies to all those (few?) who took on the Windows Defender challenge. I have no problem using it alone but I'm enjoying BD Free.

    Edit #2: I had tried BD Free not too long ago but only for a day. I was mistaken about my impression that it slowed browsing.

    Well, i usually do when receiving an with .doc docx etc i convert them to PDF which strips(i think) possible malwares inside. Use online docx converter for that or use third party software to convert it to PDF without openin "Word". Just wonderin...if you open malicioius .doc with LibreOffice, does the malware within the .doc works?

    By default libre office disables macros so they don't execute.
