    Or just jump on Win Defender as I said in one of my previous post. And You have still Kaspersky Free as an options. I expect know you don't work in the Government:vbbiggrin: You aren't *forced* to use AV from one of the two big A:)

    Last time I looked, Win Defender used more CPU resources than Avira and wasn't as effective either. Avira are light on system resources and have a high protection score: https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/windows-10/february-2019/
    (At that link you can look at other month's performance statistics too). It's been very consistent in it's performance over the years, I'm gonna stay with it for now.

    If anyone experiences random glitching (in my case audio stutter and severe fps drops for about 0.5 second at a time), you may want to try to reset the windows power schemes... my high performance mode got bugged causing the cpu to randomly drop to 800MHz on one or more cores. What a delight windows 10 can be. Giving me a heart attack that my precious 8700k or my awesome new gigabyte mb could be dying. Bah. Damn windows. I just got the 1809 2 weeks ago and already have issues. Not sure how the power scheme got bugged but oh well. It's been running problem-free for a few hours now, didn't even need to reboot.

    WD engine is constantly updated, you might wanna check that out. WD is very good these days. After a full scan CPU resources are almost <5%. Kaspersky security cloud is very good too. I avoid Avast though Avira seems good enough.

    yeah use Windows Defender if you don't care about your PC's Performance!

    I use Avast Antivirus Pro with a custom install, superb file scanner, 0 false positives, and allows me to disable the crap that I don't need like the Web-shield, software updater, etc.

    Avast is malware. I rather run without AV if this junk company was the only options.

    You don't know what you're missing in terms of performance. Did you even read the guide of how to install it above? :rolleyes:

    If you follow that guide, you can install it minus the nasty stuff and enjoy a top notch AV that's super light and doesn't interfere with your VPN like NOD32 does.
