I would keep a antivirus software for security.

In your situations, it could be the program that was set to look for virus like actavity, known as the Hueristractics. It could be set to be too hard

It's a big mistake to remove your antivirus.

If you don't really like antiviruses, go find a program that can monitor all sectors of your PC. Such as the Memory, System Files, registry, etc.

I would never prefer a PC without antivirus, EVER! Nowadays surfing the Internet without any security is asking for trouble, especially with so many virus's/malware out there. I would much prefer it to be prompting me more than usual just to be sure my system is kept secure.

Having said that it can be quite annoying but that's still not reason to disable it. You can configure these options in the settings menu of the software.

Considering I already use my PC without antivirus... yeah (LINUX FTW). I tend to pay attention to what I run anyway, being one of the few people NOT annoyed with the OS asking me permission to run things.

I would prefer people did not make viruses.

What do you expect? They're doing it for "FUN". Those low-life pricks. They'll never learn their lesson.

I think it's incredibly funny that you think people make legit viruses for fun. People make proofs of concepts that don't get used for fun.

No. Anti-virus & anti-malware software is a necessity nowadays. Some malicious software is hard to distinguish from good software even by a knowledgeable computer user.

Seeing as how a Mac is by definition a PC and based on how fast THEY run (partly from not needing AV to run), if Windows was more secure to the point where you didn't need it, yeah. I would prefer one without antivirus software.

Are you trying to say that Mac's are fast because they don't/have to run an AV?

Nope, I am fine running anti virus and anti malware software.
