I have been a user of Avira Pro for many years, which has been reliable and light, although I have never considered my AV as my first layer of defense, more of a tool to check if malware is recognized. Macrium Relect home edition, Sandboxie, and Shadow Defender are the programs that would guarantee a 100% security to my computer. I have recently installed KIS as I received a free license, dropped Sandboxie after Sophos bought it, and basically running my computer always virtualized with Shadow defender. I've had only problems with Windows' configuration, never with malware in the last 5 years.
