I agree!!
me too. I use Norton as my AV and have the paid MBAM running. I also scan frequently with SAS to get rid of spyware.

It would be so nice if we kept a record of how many malware we have caught and got rid of, every time we ran Anti-Malware applications.

As for me, I have never come across any except for an occasional one in my Browser Cache that gets deleted any way when I exit from the Browser. However I still run Malwarebytes once a fortnight or so and usually find no infection.

The fact that for most of us there is no malware only proves the saying that "the Best Safety Device is a Careful Man (Computer User)".

The people who don't know enough to have such programs are, of course, the ones who really need them

That pretty much says it all. Many of us run these programs and it's not because we have nothing else to do.
