For paid I'd suggest ESET or F-Secure.
For free I would suggest AVG or in-built Windows Defender (if you're on Windows 10).
F- secure on my system is realy heavy . ESET is top. AVG is very light but after Evjl's Rain tweaks. AVG I have now on my system :sneaky: :giggle:

How does AVG behave? Haven't tried it since like 2011.

For free products, I'd recommend stick with WD + ConfigureDefender (AndyFul). Else you can go with Kaspersky Free (only if you pair it with an anti-exe like VS or a good complement like H_C).

It's a lighter version of Avast. More light from WD and KFA.Perfect web filter and very good protection after tweaks. And have medium hardened mode.

Thanks to all. What do you think about KIS? Is Is the best suite correct ?
short answer: yes

However, I think Kaspersky free or kaspersky security cloud free is enough. You don't need KIS if you don't utilize all modules
you can do some little tweak to make it lighter
I'm using Kaspersky free 2019 with tweaks on 1 of my cheap gaming laptops

that configuration is avast, although the last time I looked it was very similar to AVG UI, I guess most of those image options are in AVG as well.

I wonder if things that compromise security such as delaying the load of services is noticeable when it comes to lightening the system, I currently use kaspersky security cloud, people say it is light, but I notice something heavy, however the protection I consider it very good.

But I was thinking if it would be a good idea to change it to AVG with that configuration, maybe I would lose protection but gain some performance.

Avast was also an option that I raised, but in the end AVG is practically the same with less advertising and " scams ", on ip visible etc etc etc.

Is the same. The only have not the AVG is the agresive hardened mode. Is medium. Ads you can block with the firewall. AVGUI.exe

Easy, use Eset.
I fully agree, I feel they work really hard to keep the product light, I've always had a soft spot fort ESET as NOD32 was some years ago the first decent AV there was around. Hopefully the latest tweaks will improve the not as good as some on detection but it still aint bad regardless. I install it on friends creaking PC's & I have yet to have any frantic calls since I've done this. Money of mine on ESET :emoji_innocent:
