I used Avast so far, for continous protection, and once a month i ran a Malwarebytes Anti Malware. My friend suggested, that i should upgrade my Malwarebytes to premium for better protection, and i did that. My question is that, should i delete Avast now? Malwarebytes run-time protection is good enough?

This one’s unusual in that it’s free and considered by far the best protection out there, yet can’t be downloaded anywhere. Without it, however, even the best security software is rendered useless.

If you haven’t already figured this out, Common Sense 2014 isn’t a product you can download so much as it is a state of mind. If you’re going to be free of viruses and malware you need to use your head while browsing the web. The most important thing to remember is this: if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is””and your computer will probably be compromised.

Free porn usually isn’t. Warez are best to be avoided altogether. Nigerians that need your help transferring money are never actually princes or princesses. You get the idea: avoid shady sites online and you’ll find you’ll get far less malware on your machine.

MalwareBytes runtime protection is good enough. If you're desperate to speed your machine up, you can get by without Avast. MalwareBytes is lighter weight than most other AV software, which makes it ideal for at least moderate protection.

In my opinion, AV protection is two fold. Software can watch for suspicious activity under the surface, but it's also partially on the user to not be stupid and expose themselves to blatant threats.
