My laptop has;

i3-370m
8 GB RAM of 1066 MHz cl7
5400rpm SATA HDD

I want a free antivirus which consumes less resources and offers high protection. (I only connect my laptop to internet occasionally).

P.S. I wanted to use it along with malwarebytes anit-malware too.

Btw, I'm stuck between Avira and Avast.

Hope I get a good answer.

Thanks in advance.

Every few months, and depending on who is doing the testing....rankings go back and forth.
No single AV will protect you always and forever.

I've had no problems with BitDefender.

The best AV solution exists between your ears.

If is low resource and high protection.
