just my two cents, i use malwarebytes mostly because i think i'm careful enough to avoid the BS on the internet. if i notice windows booting more slowly, or it .. well, if i notice BS going on, i run a scan of malwarebytes. malwarebytes sub time is cheap tho. when i was running Win7, i used windows security essentials and malwarebytes. enough said.

Edit1 - Just looked it up, 1year of malwarebytes is 32$ CAD. so... not as cheap as i thought. but meh :dots:

Avast most likely. Avira is rated high for protection but has intrusive notifications. Its easier now to not even need these anti-virus programs anymore. Just know how to browse. Unless you are really into xxx sites, then you can be smart with your browser of choice. Chrome for everything, Firefox private mode for XXX and never IE/Edge lol.


Man, I really hate it when people give that advice. While yes you can get rid of most of the threat of viruses/malware by having good browsing practices, you are not completely safe. Plus if you think you will know that you have a virus without an AV program then think again. There are many, many viruses out there that do not show themselves. They hide intentionally so as to skim passwords, banking info, etc. Also you mention xxx sites, and while true for the longest time they were the worst, you really can get infections from damn near any site if someone hijacks their ads.

Also if you are going for free, while MSE/defender are the easiest and I would say least intrusive, they are also ranked among the worst in detection rates. I would lean towards Avast or Avira. I use avast on my machines at home and also on my phones. Plus I get extra features like being able to track phones and remotely lock them and such, all for free and all linked to one account. Makes it easy to keep track of multiple devices.

You are asking for too much. If you want all of these then you should pay for it cause it didn't cost that much. Try using SafeBytes anti virus. It is
a) good at protecting computer
b) light on system resource
c) has a easy GUI
d) built in scheduler

Plus it is Norton certified and microsoft certified partner.
