I'm currently wondering what Free Antivirus would be best for myself. I'm looking for a replacement for my current Norton subscription, which I got because it came as a package with my motherboard. Other than Norton, I have the standard MalwareBytes (no subscription) and SpyBot S&D (I know, old, but it normally finds things that neither Malwarebytes nor Norton will locate).
All I really do on my computer is watch YouTube, work, research (mostly not on... shoddier websites), gaming, and (very rarely as I prefer my phone since I hold my PC at a higher standard, and cost) porn.


Also, my PC is equipped with Windows 10.

Thanks for your troubles!

Avast free https://www.avast.com/index
or Panda free antivirus www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/solutions/free-antivirus/
combined with your current programs will protect you plenty,
and they are both great/"best" programs, so doesnt matter which one you choose(can only have 1 of them)
never count on just the built in windows protection, even if you dont visit those "dodgy sites"

Fancy benefiting from the experience of 477 million people? That's the number of times Avira Free Antivirus has been installed, and its cloud-based security pools their history of virus exposure: if a user on the other side of the planet encounters a new nasty, all of Avira's users get the ability to detect it.

It's fast, friendly, doesn't give you too many prompts and alerts, can identify unwanted apps inside legitimate applications and most importantly of all, achieved 100 per cent malware detection in tests - a score shared with BitDefender and Kaspersky, but significantly ahead of many of its rivals.

you can use the built-in windows defender + malwarebytes anti-exploit free version + common sense.
Don't forget the third one. You also gotta keep an eye on other people less scrupulous and informed than you, who use your computer.
Make them a local account, so they can't mess things up too bad.

EDIT; It doesn't hurt to do a scan every once and a while with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free version.
