I truly believe mcafee and kaspersky are very heavy on system resources.

Best bet would be to install Ublock on browsers + windows defender + malwarebytes anti malware + spybot search and destroy.

Last two mentioned software can be run once or twice a month for peace of mind + updating virus database

@Vedant got this mail today. This mail is so stupid. They are going to get people to end up with unconfigured routers.

it seems that they are now sending this mail on a monthly basis without any details on what kind of malware was detected and specifically how.
