Ccleaner is basically all I use for my computers.

ESET Smart Security is my protection suite and O&O Defrag my HDD defrag program. I only run these once in awhile though.

It's a shame that more games and applications aren't ported for Linux. But I suppose that if they were, more viruses and malware would be ported for Linux as well...

Well, Macs do get a few viruses and games are being ported to them. The problem lies about the complexity of both Unix and Linux kernels, being a completely different model altogether. Windows is all integrated, despite having a modular design, while Linux and Unix are completely modular and the kernels can be modded.

That's probably why not all distros can run a game that works on one compared to another.

There are AVs for them too, in case people asked...

None, just regular Disk Defrag to keep files in order on HD and the odd cache files clean up.

Sometimes I check my registry files.

I use Nortons 360 ISS
