Probably my own ignorance, but I tried AVAST Free version and it seemed to be constantly alerting me to things that only the paid version could fix. I didn't really know if it was actually blocking the viruses with the free version, or just "Alerting me" that they were there.
Eventually I uninstalled it.
Maybe I just need to quit being so cheap and get the paid version ? (I am already also using Malwarebytes Premium)

What OS do you run OP? Hopefully you're on Windows 10.
I like Sigs and HK's, and maybe Glocks
Windows Defender is all I use and I've never picked up a virus or malware with it.

I am the only person on this forum using PCMatic. Everyone here tells me it sucks. I have been using it since prior to 2008. I have never had an issue with it. Some years past they offered an "evergreen" subscription, which was lifetime. I was due for an annual renewal and got the lifetime offer. YMMV

AVG Ultimate on sale at Fry's.com works great
I appreciate all the replies so far. I am looking into them and trying to figure out what I will go with. I feel I am getting overcharged paying for McAfee.

Going on 4 years of Bitdefender use.
They had some glitches when going from 2017 --> 2018 but worked them out and gave me a bunch of extra subscription time for the hassle. It updates it's V definitions every hour.
No complaints so far.

This is what I've been using since updating to W10, although I'll run Immunet scanner now and again. Some third party virus programs may actually hinder W10 from running critical updates.
Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.
okay, let me bring this back up, and put it another way; Is there a decent Antivirus program out there that effective and is either politically neutral, or pro-conservative values?

PCMatic is a scam company that bombarded users with relentless ads so much they are trying to go legit.
Not a serious security company, IMO.

ESET Security Suite here. Been running it for about 10 years. Running it on multiple computers at home and at my business. It is low on resource usage, easy to use, and I have never had a problem and that included having two teenagers using them for years.
Having said that, I also consider myself a tech-wennie and have taken other steps in addition to antivirus. When my children were young they would screw up the PC quite regularly. Not with viruses but just screwing it up. Used to run an image of their PC every week so I could completely restore the computer in about 15 minutes.
I have been using Trend Micro for about 6 years, it has been excellent.
BitDefender and Malwarebytes.
I am ready to "Make America Great Again."
I have Sophos Home Free on our home computer. You don't know it's there until it pops up and warns it has detected something suspicious, or you try to open a page and it says it's an infected site with such and such. The do have a paid subscription version as well.
