Bit Defender and malware bytes are among the best.

But I'm going to be honest with you, the free stuff isn't as good as the paid stuff. The paid versions contain more features which more actively protect your system. The free stuff may keep you from sketchy sites, avoid TLS 1.0, and catch most virus attacks, but lack advanced remediation routines.

Paid software contain advanced features like encryption lockers and protected files to protect against advanced system changes and ransomware. So if a new virus comes out, and the first level of defense fails, the paid versions have additional backups to protect you.

PS: Some "Free Versions" also might sell your personal behavior and email addresses. This is one revenue stream to keep "free" going. So read the terms of service CAREFULLY.

You know the saying "You get what you pay for."

I use 360 Total Security for years and I'm not complaining. It's a Chinese company antivirus and some people look at it with suspecions, but I'm personally satisfied with this antivirus and been using it for years. Comes with anti-ransomeware as well.

Your Windows 10 PC already comes with Windows Defender. But if you want cybersecurity and even online Protection you can go for Bit Defender Antivirus that runs in the background and keeps your computer fully protected.
