If you like dual boot, then use dual boot. But that is really the worst option of using Linux alongside with Windows.

Can you explain what you mean by Microsoft's Malware tool as I don't recognize that software. Is it MSE, or is it something different?

I disagree. But to each his own. I think it is more likely you can find out something wrong quicker with online banking then without. To many people I know got accounts or identity stolen and found it way too late, since statements take a month. Most banks as soon as you purchase something show it right on your account. Imho, that is better than waiting for a statement until it is too late.

Most banks also have basic functionality when you log on, (especially if you stick with smaller banks) showing only how much money you have in your account, and thats about it. The chain banks that are nationwide and stuff will be more vulnerable, since they let you transfer money etc.

You should only try dual booting with Linux and Windows if you have been sucessful before at it. You don't want anything to get messed up and possibly lose one of the operating systems.

Hey thanks for answers one last I think I've decided to go with 2014 Norton Internet Security but if I do can go without rapport I was reading about 2014 Norton and it has identy theft, malware, spyware and virus so really I only the one software or would hurt to install rapport and 2 others I use is the free antispware and malware.

You should only have 1 AV program installed. You can have scanners in addition. NIS 2014 is a good choice.
