I haven't seen any malware in years, so I don't feel like wasting system resources for additional software. Instead of this I am using Common Sense 2015 Beta ;)
I use Windows built in AV & firewall too, with respect to Fantasy, as all ducks are not always equal,:p @Umbra Polaris makes some good points for native security,

"If you just surf safely, don't use dodgy software, it is all you need; windows security is implemented at kernel level; one level deeper than any other security softs. Now I don't say that using other security softs is useless but unlike with Win7, you don't need them anymore.

I personally use some of them because I have to ( I closed-beta test them ) if not I would just stick with what Win8 offers.".;)

most of the people that bash Win8, never really used it or don't have any clue of what an OS should do. They just focus on their "used-to-use- useless-crap-fluffy-designed-toys
".

Thanks for sharing your configuration!:cool:

Hello pablozi,

Just a suggestion... since you visit Phishing Sites.

Add an anti-executable for that occasional drive-by download: VooDooShield Frree or NoVirusThanks Exe Radar Pro - get free beta on MT subforum "Other Security Software."
Thanks for suggestion, but i've tried both of them and I really don't feel like I need them - Adguard is enough :)
