None. Security is a process, not an application.

None. Post Windows Vista the operating systems function at new security levels which makes traditional antivirus software all bit obsolete - all they do is generally slow down your computer and make your Windows experience even more frustrating than normal. Most modern malware, zero days, and OS exploits completely bypass the traditional software antivirus protection level. In 2018, endpoint security that is solely done by antivirus software and not paired with active unified threat management at the network (see: router) level is a complete waste of time, money, and effort.

Install MalwareBytes (avoid their stupid attempts to sell you a similarly useless antivirus as "active protection", just use it to scan and remove) with their rootkit scanning turned ON (its off by default). Pair it with a second-opinion cloud-based lightweight scanner like Hitman Pro that runs on boot. That's about the best security you will get as a home end-user, and as an added bonus they will actually effectively mitigate the threat where generally speaking full-suite antivirus software will let it slip by.

With that said, if you are absolutely hell-bent on bloating up your computer with resource-stealing processes for no real logical reason and just have some silly techno-illiterate OCD need to install an antivirus software anyway after everyone I've explained - then Kaspersky is the only real choice. It was so effective at catching the CIA malware that all the other OEM's are basically US NSA letter and gag-order forced to backdoor for the Government Corporation, that the software was recently banned from US government corporation computers.

Luckily I'm not hell bent on anything. I will absolutely look into Malewarebytes.

I use no anti-virus, to me that is the virus. I do use MalwareBytes scan sometimes. If you must use a anti-virus I suggest MalwareBytes. If I had a huge million dollar business full of computers I would use a anti-virus.

Are you a computer illiterate normie? AV is for you. In fact, it only exists because of you.

Otherwise, it's what @TheBuddha said.

ESET Nod32 is what I use, but I also take an extra step by running as a non-admin user for daily use.
