If you trust Toms, read this:
https://www.tomsguide.com/us/best-antivirus,review-2588.html

PCMag is a good read once in a while as well, so check here:

Avast support is reading on TomsHardware forums "security", so you have a point of contact here.

IMHO: Any AntiVirus is for the religious. Even the Windows Defender is quite good meanwhile. Every once in a while the AntiVir solution of your choice introduces its own security problems. Take any advertisment with a grain of salt, and all reviews are biased.

abura, you can also take a look at independent testing from security companies as you search for your ideal solution. (Reviews are great though as well! Toms rated us as Best Free Antivirus :)

See AV-comparatives and AV-TEST for some examples.

https://www.av-test.org/en/

Another factor you won't want to overlook are *features* in addition to protection. Is the program easy to use? Is it offering the protection you want? But also, what other benefits are there to the software? (examples on our end are things like Behavior Shield, Ransomware Shield, Webcam Shield, and so on.) That can be another item you consider as you're looking around.

If you have any questions about Avast or AVG, here to help and best of luck in your search.

To me it's ESET 2018 Edition. Apart from the basic features, one of the new features in this edition is the UEFI Scanner which protects you from threats that attack your PC before Windows has even started, so I think it's quite topical today
