I was wondering if having an antivirus installed is still a necessary thing in 2017 for me, I will explain myself:
I never use my antivirus to scan file that I'm not really sure about (I use a service like VirusTotal for example), the only case is when a file is large.
I have add-on on my web browser to block script and stuff and I try to avoid unknown links and website.
I'm updating everything (OS,Java,ETC...)
If you think about that having an anti virus doesn't really seems necessary, it's just using a little bit of memory.
I understand that for some people it's useful, but since I'm the only user of my PC.
What do you guys think ?
EDIT:I'm talking about a simple free antivirus like Avast for example.
