Odd question.

Having an antivirus if you run Windows is a good idea. Once in a while you find folk ask if one is better than the next.

My question is -> Have you ever been to a horse race?

Works well enough for me

Works well enough for me. The key is recognizing that there are limitations to all programs, and no security program yet invented will save you from your own stupidity. It doesn't matter how many features some security suite has, if you insist on going around to a bunch of seedy websites, downloading whatever, and running it on your computer, bad things will happen. There is no substitute for a little discipline on your part.
