I use Avast. I haven't used paid software like Norton for years. Never had a problem with Avast.

Bitdefender. In my experience, the most useful antivirus is a bit of common sense!

Windows 10 and malwarebytes. That's all you need if you have some common sense.

Between Windows Defender and the AdBlock extension on Chrome, I've never had a single problem on this PC.

Avast. It's been years and I've yet to find one that's better.

Yet to have a virus it hasn't blocked, as well.

Emsisoft (free give away last year), but ESET, Kaspersky and Norton are the other best choices.

Windows Defender is another great choice (Microsoft has improved it a lot now) as well as Avira and Qihoo (best free option IMO).

Used to be an avast and AVG user but their recent versions have turned into bloated software with performance issues and mediocre protection.

Avast. The free version does the job.

None - unless you wish to slow down your PC and medal with your existing apps in interesting, exciting and unintended ways. Windows 10 is probably one of the most secure OSs these days. It is the people using them that generally facilitate fraud or trojan horses to be installed. No anti virus can prevent that.
