Hello and we are back for 2021 :) Usually I do these polls every 2 or 3 years, but since I have some extra time this year, why not? Let's see the WINNERS we've had for the polls in the previous years.

2020 Winner - Windows Defender
2018 Winner - Kaspersky Free Antivirus
2017 Winner - Avast Free Antivirus
2015 Winner - Qihoo Total Security

Last time Windows Defender won the nominations & the final round. This time are we expecting anything different? Let's wait and watch :)

1. Kaspersky
2. BitDefender
Kaspersky gets the top position. Both are light on system resources imo, BD is slighty heavy in terms of RAM though and many settings are not accessible to user in BD free. No MS Defender because Defender keeps automatically enabling itself if for some reason you disable it in settings.

Sorry for my opinion, but i HATE windows defender for some reasons (cloud dependent), my nominates:
1. Kaspersky
2. Norton
3. Bitdefender
thanks.
All of them uses cloud protection as well, I don't get your point. Also Norton is not free.
