After years of using Norton, a few months with Bitdefender, I got Malwarebytes for my family, mostly due to its scan scheduler and not its capabilities as an "true" antivirus, so if one of them, or even me, gets infected, I dont have to lift an finger due to being arguably the best dedicated scanner.
