Google "The family of Android malware that slipped past security defenses and infiltrated Google Play is more widespread than previously thought. New evidence shows it was folded into three additional apps and has been operating for at least 10 months, according to security researchers." Google removed most of it, but not before it was installed anywhere between 2 to 9 million times - finally some figures from Google itself, and not scaremongering by antivirus companies. At 9 million, that's 1.2% of all Android devices sold.

Here's a more important question - does he NOTICE a difference in speed when the AV software is running vs when it isn't? And if the answer is no, then it really doesn't matter, does it?

Notice the wording:
My antivirus does not slow down my computer at all.

He did not say a word about not "noticing" anything, he stated it as fact. If he had been a bit more careful with his wording, then I wouldn't have said a word about that in response.
