Is Paying For Antivirus A Waste Of Money?

Considering the fact that almost all of the good antivirus software out there is free, I'm going to go ahead and say yes. Are any of you paying for antivirus software?

I always run an anti-malware security suite on my PC. Over the years I've made a point of running a variety of products. At least for many years, perhaps more than ten, they've found no malware on my computers. None. Perhaps I'm a more sophisticated user and I'm less likely to be taken off guard, but that can't be the whole answer. By the same token of expertise I take certain risks with dangerous files and sites that I would urge others to avoid like the plague.
