Not really, I run Symantec Corporate virus scanner on top of not installing things that I don't need or don't know/trust. I also have a pretty good feel for what should or should not be running due to my background in programming :)

Having had used and admined SAV Corp Ed for many years (7 just the last time) at multiple corporations I have to say that I'm not impressed with its detection rate. In fact, a number of years ago one infection that got through that SAV didn't catch I had to end up writing my own utility to detect and remove it. Took Symantec a few days to get on the ball with that one.

 

Hopefully you're scanning with other tools too besides SAV. :)

Simply not installing things I don't need or I don't trust goes a long way on top of being behind a firewall and locking down anything I don't actually need to use.
