    McAfee - Total Protection or Total Bullshit?

    I haven't had any internet protection other than windows defender for about a year, ever since my McAfee subscription ended. When McAfee ended I completely removed it from my computer. Now, a year later I decided to get another subscription out of curiosity. I installed it again, ran a full system scan, and....nothing. Now its been a year and all I do is download shit off the internet. I torrent all the time, I regularly browse the hidden wiki's list of .tor sites, I go all over the clear web, ect, ect. Not a single thing in one year that is considered a threat to my pc has been picked up by McAfee. I have always thought that Anti virus software was bullshit and unnecessary. What do you guys think?
