I've been using AVG Free for as long as I can remember. Since the Windows 10 upgrade I've been using Windows Defender, along with my paid version of MBAM Premium.

Question 1: Is it worth it to buy a paid version of AV software if I don't visit shady sites and don't torrent? Is my current protection good enough for me?

Question 2: Is anyone using Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2016 (paid version)? Is it a resource hog?
