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

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.

Someone said just use Windows Defender but in the interim that I used it, I ended up with Malware.

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.
