maybe i am lucky!! ;)

No you're not ... you have common sense, as do a lot of people that don't need antivirus programs (myself included).

I keep an antivirus installed, but just for scanning purposes - no shields, services, email scanners or other crap like that - just a file scanner that I use every 6 month, and I have yet to have a virus.

The best recipe for staying virus free is a good firewall (I use ZoneAlarm), a browser that is not IE, don't open attachements that look odd and don't run software from warez sites. It's as easy as that.
