    We can´t make that desicion for you... If you like doing dangerous stuf, need the real-time protection, can and want to pay for it, then...

    Huh?

    Otherwise just run regular scans and forget about it. As long as you have a good AV and you are not dumb AF you´ll be all right.

    As said, if you have a decent AV then you don't need the paid version. Just run a manual scan once in a while. Are you running an AV program? If so, which one?

    Thats what I put on all my clients systems and then malwarebytes free alongside. You don't need to buy it.

    JUST DO ITTTTTTT

    I currently run no AV and haven't for 2 years. I think I need to get one. This Avast you speak of, I'm assuming it's decent as you put it on customers computers.

    How do they give it away free? What's the incentive to pay for the full version?

    I just attempted to download Free Avast but it says Malwarebytes is getting in the way and wants me to uninstall it. I just paid $40 for Malwarebytes, can I let them run side-by-side and still be ok even though it urges me not to do that?

    Having two live scanners can create conflicts between the two. I have both the paid malwarebytes and free avast. No problem there. By the way, an A-V is essential.

    You can still use Avast with the paid version of Malwarebytes, just have to set Avast to passive mode.
