    Do you really need to use PC antivirus software? That's a legitimate question with an answer that's more complex than a simple "yes" or "no."
    The days of PCs being viewed as virus-ridden boxes of dismay are long gone. But that doesn't mean there aren't lots of terrible people out there creating malicious programs with the intent to steal something or just create havoc.
    Some PC makers will preload antivirus software and try to coerce you into signing up for it, because that's how they make money. But you shouldn't ever feel pressured, and you likely don't need whatever it is they're shilling.
    But do you actually need antivirus software in 2017? Yes ... and no.
