    My Eset Internet Security license ended so I decide to go for a free security solution that didnt heavily affect the performance of my "potato" laptop:
    Windows Firewall + Kaspersky Security Cloud Free

    I was going with Avast Free instead of Kaspersky Free because it is lighter on the system but nowadays in my opinion Avast uses scammy ways to promote their paid products also they recently had some privacy issues.

    Just before someone says: "Update your RAM to 8gb and/or update your HDD to SSD for better performance"
    I am not going to do that because I am saving money to buy a better pc.
