    None of those AV programs can really protect you 100%.

    As a first line of defense I make frequent images so that I can easily roll back.

    Then I run my internet activities from a virtual Linux Mint Mate.

    All files I download and put on the host I check first with Virus Total. That setup has served me well.

    That was only an opening sentence for my story. However, many people believe that their AV program can protect them - which in fact it can only in some cases.
