    I am wondering why no one has recommended the free Comodo Internet Security.

    That's probably comodo is quite heavy on the system. It really slows down the system. I use quick heal and run malwarebytes occasionally. Works quite well for me. And importantly it doesn't slow the system.

    I am running CIS + MBAM on my laptops + HTPC and don't experience any slow downs. Especially not when you look at it as an AV + FW + HIPS + BB + Sandbox tool + Online Lookup

    Fine, if you don't mind managing it. To me the best AV are those that you set and forget. They work completely behind the scenes and unobtrusively. You also gain additional controls that allow you to temporarily turn them off (for a set time) with one click.

    Additionally, they can warn you of suspicious websites and/or activities. You can check a sites reputation and auto scan any external devices connecting to your system (my system's most vulnerable position),

    That's just some of the convenience you typically get with paid AV. They also perform additional task (like backup, and system performance scans, disc defrag. etc.) that you may or may not need.

    In any event, the best AV is YOU. Your vigilance and awareness of what's going into your computer, cannot be overstated.

    Malewarebytes, but not bitdefender. It's not lightweight at all
