    Just the Microsoft product.
    I notice it updates several times a day.
    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    Just to put in a small difference of opinion, I am using Sophos home free for friends and family, as it has email notifications.

    We also use Sophos at work and I have been impressed with it there.

    If you work in any government, security, or data sensitive field... or if you just don't want Vlad knowing what you buy on Amazon, I'd probably give it a miss.

    I expect that whatever av you use some government will have some kind of access to it.

    For me what matters is what will give me the best security and performance for the money given that we donít handle anything marked secret or above.

    To be fair, I would expect that "If you work in any government, security, or data sensitive field", you wouldn't be asking this question on a dive forum! Besides, if the Russian government (or the USG, or UKG or most others I imagine) want to spy on you, they'll do it regardless of what antivirus software you use unless you want to go all survivalist and design your own high security OS running off a fully encrypted drive, communicating via a VPN and so on. But I doubt any of us has anything worth them nicking and besides, they can always kick the door in and take you off for a little "manicure", or maybe some waterboarding to find out if you decided to buy that 12V or 240V fan for your drysuit dryer! It's the backstreet criminals and our own clumsiness that we're likely to need to protect ourselves from.
