Like Umbra said, remove SAS. Something that you can add to Chrome at lease is, Lastpass, HTTPS Everywhere, No Script. Also is UAC on high or?

Thank you for your suggestions! :) I have removed SAS, I will now head over to the web store and check out those apps you mentioned. And the UAC is on default.

Those videos are irrelevant. One day Avast could do better, the next Avira could score higher. I've seen other videos where Avira scores way higher than Avast. Plus I switch Antivirus programs all the time. I rather test them out myself than rely on review videos on YouTube. I was using Avast yesterday and it found it was slowing down my internet and system. Avira is more lightweight for me and doesn't slow down browsing speeds.

It doesn't matter if Avira misses anything cause Comodo is running in background to auto sandbox anything unknown.

Along with my Group policy tweaks certain file types are denied from running in certain directories.

Tomorrow I could be running Kaspersky or ESET or even back to Avast. I like testing these programs myself.

No antivirus is 100% perfect so it doesn't matter which one I choose. I have Comodo to stop stuff that Avira misses anyways and it's usually blocked before it can even run by my policies I have set anyways.

I've seen malware such as Ransomware bypass both Avast and Avira. However that same file was blocked by Comodo.

Good news! I am now back to Avast. It is indeed light. I found out the problem was I had Comodo's HIPS on clean mode which slowed the system down dramatically. Soon as I disabled the HIPS feature it sped right back up again. I am using Avast's HIPS instead with Comodo's auto sandbox and I have no browsing or system slowdowns :)

Ohhhhh that was the reason, I was wondering.
