Did you consider that an anti-virus may actually be the worst security
solution for certain threats because it allows companies not to think
about security while providing insufficient protection?

What's your choice:
Company A installs an anti-virus and updates it regularly (BTW regularly
includes once a year).
Company B has a recovery concept, incident response team, vulnerability
monitoring, patch management, NIDS, security training but no anti-virus.

He probably thought that I am with the rules of PCI, or that I don't have any idea that the world is not just WINDOWS !!!

No, I don't think so.
