Hi. I already have bit defender (paid version), but I saw a video of linus and he said that having anti-virus and anti-malware was good, also that free didn't mean bad, so, going for the free anti malware.

Also, I was scanning my pc and it found a trojan script, that was in an email. I never opended it, the email was on the trash, but still in my pc. It's ok if I don't open it right?

Thanks :D

Malwarebytes is a well-known and good anti-malware program. The official website where you can download it is: https://www.malwarebytes.org/. You can just delete the email I suppose, it's in the thrash folder for a reason right? ;)

I disagree. Malwarebytes is to be used solely as an anti-malware software as it does not protect your PC in real-time. You should use it in conjunction with one or more of these.

If you are concerned about RATs, key loggers, etc. You should invest in Zenmana (has a free version). The paid version protects your PC in real time, and encrypts your keystrokes, passwords, and screen. I use Remote Administration Tools on my laptops incase they get stolen so i can lock them down, then find them. With Zenmana as soon as I interact with my laptop Zenmana quarantines my RAT. My RAT is set to BSOD on the termination of it's process, however Zenmana also bypasses this feature.

You should get Avira (free) for real time general virus protection. It monitors your PC in real time, and alerts you if it finds active Malware.

If you have ad-ware you should use, Spy bot - Search and Destroy(free). It should remove all ad-ware from your PC.
