My top pick for free would be
Bitdefender
Kaspersky


The beta version is called FS Protection, I do know someone who been using it for some time as far as I've heard its quite stable.
A side note : Seems like Bitdefender free will stop (Source BD Forum) Bitdefender free and new version for the year 2021

Hello Mike,
I received an email saying that Bitdefender Free will no longer be available and as a Bitdefender Free user I can get a discount on Bitdefender Total (which I don't care about).
The only version of Bitdefender Free is the English and German one, the Italian one has never existed (even if requested several times).
So it is assumed that the only version of Bitdefender Free will no longer be available.

------------------------------- :rolleyes:

Hi
We're trying to concentrate our development and innovations towards layered security and protect our users beyond one platform. And protect all devices which connect to the internet, as now, everybody has multiple devices which might be exposed. Hence the offer you have received.

cheers,

Mike

WiseVector by a mile. It's all I want in an AV, except not being able to register it in Windows is too much of a ballache at moment, so im using the dirt cheap Eset Internet Security you can get in the country i live in. That's pretty good too.
I don't know if a vpn would work and they check cc card locales too, but shopee.co.th is a goldmine for av software for next to nothing.
