Best free antivirus ? Should I switch from AVAST ?

Hi ! Complete newbie here, I’ve been using AVAST since I got my first computer, and I randomly found some topics about « what’s the best antivirus », and avast seemed to get a lot of hate.. (selling users data, using a lot of cpu etc..). And the problem is that during my research, some topics were from 4 years ago, some from 2 etc..

I’m basically looking for the best antivirus out here, free if possible, since I just use my laptop for music production and sometimes games but that’s it. Since production takes a lot of CPU, I would of course prefer an antivirus with less CPU consumption.

Thanks for your help (and excuse my approximative English :D)



avast! is very good. Just disable everything except first checkbox in Privacy settings and you’ll be good to go. Other good options are Kaspersky Free and Bitdefender Free. Even Windows Defender can be an option. Since they are free, give each a try and see if they work well for you.
