To make it clear, I do not belong to the snake oil faction. What is that? There is a solid group of people who think you do not need a virus scanner. The providers would sell only miracle drugs in expensive annual subscriptions that bring nothing or even on the contrary, the computer still with additional security holes.
You can argue about that for a long time, but I disagree that anti-virus must be for most users, especially Windows. Even Microsoft agrees and packs its own virus scanner with the Defender. But the most popular products of the anti-virus manufacturers are not the pure virus scanners, but their Internet Security Suites. These packages contain antivirus protection, but many other components. I no longer use them on my computer.
