Default Broadband, anti virus

Over the years I have read many many posts about who is best for broadband, who is best for anti virus, and to be fair, who can honestly say?
You get what you pay for. My broadband is with BT Infinity, unlimited downloads, no problemo. My virus protection is with McAfee. Ok I pay for it, but in all of the years I have used it, I have never ever had a problem.

You get what you pay .... or not pay for. It's called life. There is no such thing as a free lunch. Wake up people and feel the grass.

I've used either AVG or Avast free antivirus versions constantly over the last 10 years or so, and both have performed well and prevented any problems, so yes, I got what I paid for, nothing and no problems.

The moral of this escapes me unless free antivirus is as good as the paid for variety.
If you can keep your head when those around are losing theirs, maybe you just don't understand the situation.........

have used AVG and Avast - both free versions (now moved all PCs to Avast) never an issue and would recommend

'paid for' anti-virus products I'm sure are fine but I don't believe are needed with the free products currently available

moral,. you can pay more than you need for any particular product,. more expensive != better?
