Any suggestions appreciated. Have kaspersky. Good but too bloated. PC is grinding to a halt.
Best antivirus ever - LINUX
But if you still want Microsoft... Well, AVG does a good job for free.
I use Norton 360, but Microsoft Security Essentials isn't bad for a freebie when used in conjunction with something like Malware Bytes.
Nod32 from eset is very lightweight, sometimes I have to check for a pulse. Comes highly recommended from web tech chappies.
Trouble is they've all become bloated over the years. and some of the blocking options that most individuals would be pleased to activate are all disabled by default requiring that level of IT knowledge that many of us really don't have
I'll second the LINUX suggestion.
But I also use windows for some stuff, and I use avira with windows. It's not bloated and uses very little resources until it decides to update all by itself when you are in the middle of something important, then you can forget about doing anything until it finishes, hogs ALL resources, and the popup every 24 hours suggesting you should go paid is annoying. Apart from that it's fine.
I personally love playing around with the Windows-tools-processes-priority settings if I'm aware of anything trying to tell me "whats happening bruv"
I use ClamWin Anti Virus - fast, free and easy to use.
Nod32 or Avast
+1 for Avast.
Used it for years now.
