Re

Kaspersky Security Cloud free. Add SpyShelter free (with a firewall and HIPS) will make them a strong combo

If you want a paid version can use Kaspersky Internet Security or BitDefender Internet Security

ESET Internet Security/Avast Premium Security (both paid) have many features and runs well too, but their protection is second to Kaspersky/BitDefender

Bitdefender is a go to! Not hungry on CPU resource and does not give out alot of false positive

Comparing the free ones,

Am using Kaspersky after comparing against Bitdefender. In terms of resource use, both are quite similar for low-resource machines. Reviews show these two to be quite on par in terms of detection strength. In terms of interface, I like the extra bit of control that Kaspersky has over Bitdefender (a little oversimplified for my liking). Boils down to user preferences for both of these.

I liked KSC enough to subscribe to KTS for 2y, but the free KSC is more than sufficient.
