Hi,
I use Avast free and Herd Protect together, (both of these are free).
Herd Protect doesn't clash with Avast.
Hope this Helps
P.S Windows Defender is also very good, and it is built in for free with Windows 7 and above.

Bitdefender free is another good option. For 2nd layer security there is also Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Anti-Exploit along with herdprotect. 2nd layer can all be run together but you can only pick 1 primary antivirus.
