If you have to use a freebie then Avast is probably still the way to go I have it on my phone it can be a bit of a pest with its notification but all in all doesn't really impact performance much

Avast in silent mode is pretty good, and Antivir wasn't bad either. Like others most of what I do other than gaming is on linux, Solus specifically. I do use Clam there, because while the linux partition isn't all that vulnerable, almost everyone I interact with is on windows, so I like to be certain that i am not a vector. After the new build is active as my main rig, I am going to play around with running Win10 in a VM within Solus, and run a fresh image every time I reboot. hard to get a more persistent and secure solution.

Yeah I wish I had a spare PC for Linux but being in school and stuff everything is windows based so it's far to much work to get everything in order.

Would you consider it unobstructive for the average user? Like poop ads and etc? It can handle everything on its own in "silent" mode or something?
It is smart in "silent" mode, but i like when it asks me everything.

Hi Folks! if you are looking free Antivirus software for your PC or Laptop and you are using Windows OS operating system than I will suggest you use Windows Defender. I'm using for 2 years still I'm using it never got any issue about it and also working perfectly for me. You will get this antivirus software by default on windows 8 and 10.
