Yeah, I was reading through that thread before I uninstalled. That's absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable. I'm just going to use another program instead.
In all honesty, if one just watches where they go, what is the point in an anti-virus? I have adapted to a method where I kinda just don't use a pro-active AV, make sure I only go to trusted places, and run malwarebytes every so often.

Given the frequency of well established sites pushing malware through ads etc I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Ah ye, that is very true. Doesn't most every ad-blocker work very well against those?

Yes, I would imagine so.

I haven't used an anti virus in years personally. If I am ever unsure I just run malwarebytes and move on.
