What operating system? What hardware? How well-trained is the user? What is the browsing behaviour?

The story is, it is much more important to keep your system updated (both OS and applications) to not fall victim of a botnet or ransomware these days. You'll benefit more from a firewall with IPS than from AV software now. Simply because most viruses need one or more actions from the end-user.
We hate rut, but we fear change.
