    Things have changed quite a bit since XP. Everybody advised that if you are using Windows, don't use it or go on the internet without an antivirus.
    Well, in XP, all users had full admin access. So, they could more easily do more damage.

    Kaspersky is one of the worst for muscling 'antivirus madness' onto your machine without you understanding what's going on!
    Windows Defender works best with Windows 10!

    if they do what have they actually got installed on their computers

    99.99% of this stuff is just SCAREWARE
    Sorry for my poor English comprehension. I don't understand the above sentence.
    Do you mean 'if they install it, 99.99% of what they actually get is just scareware'?

    Since this topic is still alive I will add something interesting.

    Ransomware if it's written properly (sic !!!!!) will defeat any of these A/V systems
    Indeed, AVs fail to detect malware using WSH and powershell scripts. On the other hand Comodo Firewall, or more precisely, its sandbox was able to stop all ransomware, without any AV installed, that says it all.
