I really wonder how effective an anti-virus application that updates only once a month will be, and especially if it comes from MS, which cannot even seem to patch it's security flaws in a timely manner.
Several articles recently have mentioned that the time between a virus appearing, being discovered, and patched by regular AV solutions, is steadily decreasing, not INCREASING, just as the time before a proof of concept is posted and an actual instance is discovered.
Given the increase in viruses over the last few years, having a AV that updates frequently seems to be the only realistic solution.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
