Hello! I would like to setup for some netbook and I wouldn't want to and can't manage stuff like licenses and stuff on that one. What are some effective free and light security software/setups out there that's also automated - no decision making necessary/can configure once to do so. Suggestions? Thoughts? Experiences?

Avast has one of the most automated malware clearing in most AVs, they don't really ask you what you want to do with the file but rather just quarantines the file immediately. Avast is also generally light in terms of resource usage during normal browsing.

Another option could be several cloud AVs, seeing as processing in the cloud would make it lighter than traditional AVs. Sophos home is another AV which I find is light on my computer, and most of the decision making is done automatically when a file is detected to be malicious.
