Topic: Win7 sp1 without an antivirus?

Whether the subject from the point of view of safety in the modern conditions is possible? Can be enough to deliver any firewall, to be closed from network ? Or any absolutely easy antivirus. But that was not engaged in constant scanning  but only checked scripts on pages in browsers. And if it is necessary to check up a file that is virustotal. A problem that free antiviruses also contain a heap of advertizing in that, and the horse-radish knows than are engaged in a background, and generally the modern interface of anti-virus programs is awful.

Well, at me here is how time such situation - Win 7 x64, is not present any antivirus. Following measures are taken for safety: 1) everything Is disconnected that is not necessary. The list of operating services finds room on one screen. 2) is not present any  software packages - office, studio, a photoshop,  the reader, etc. Almost all programs small, with the open code. And the majority . 3) I Work exceptional under the restricted security account. 4) permanently works SimpleSoftwarePolicy - the thin superstructure over the standard group politicians, not giving to launch programs anywhere, except two-three allowed directories. 5) it is installed TinyWall - the thin superstructure over standard  Windows, by default locks EVERYTHING, the output in the Internet is resolved only to a small amount of programs. 6) well, actually, in setting of new unchecked programs generally I am engaged rarely (yes it and is not necessary for me). I plan to buy license Sandboxie - I will launch almost all in . Here somehow so. While  activity I do not note. Well and always anyway it is necessary to do .

For a long time I do not use an antivirus only occasionally I scan a computer about harmful programs. I work under restricted , but I put all necessary updates.

For house conditions, perhaps that is possible, on the verge of a foul (in a greater degree it will depend on technical qualification and the elementary computer hygiene of users). A> Can be enough to deliver any firewall, to be closed from network ? Here speech about timely setting of updates since sometimes holes are in very old protocols is faster. Strongly sensational example - petya + smb1.

As a variant - to acquire something like ESET NOD32.
