What I see that despite creating too many processes, does not seem to consume RAM or CPU or Disk.
Yes have many processes but is light at all. Not delays fast boot . Kaspersky is bit lighter

I don't know what Avira tried to do. It has destroyed the product. The protection is as before has not changed. Only the web protection is better than before. The protection is based on the cloud and with signatures. Pretty weak in ransomware. Infected several times in my tests with one week old samples. I don't recommend it for the money it costs. Even free to was the AVIRA PRIME , I would prefer Kaspersky free or Bitdefender free.

For now Avira uninstalled :)

Kaspersky cloud free. the best I have tried at free version in the last 2 years. I had tried Kaspersky free but it was quite heavy with delays in applications. This version of 2020 is incredibly lightweight (with tweaks) And it has great protection. Even paid versions can't compare to Kaspersky cloud free. Anyone unable to pay for protection I recommend. 1 Kaspersky cloud free 2 Bitdefender free.
What are the tweaks you used with Kaspersky Security Cloud Free?

360 TSEssential unistaled because is older version from 360 TS. 360TSE is very light , have not ads (maybe one the day), have good protection against malwares but with ransomwares is not good. I look forward to seeing @harlan4096 opinion for the new version 360TS

I changed PRO to Avast free because Avast stopped supporting this version. Now there will be only free and Premium versions. In addition to bad reviews for personal data, Avast has incredible protection. In my test it is a combo with syshardener, and the setup is tweaks from Evjl's Rain. Is one of the best free antivirus. It is a light, low Ram and low CPU usage.
