The Absolute Lightest Antivirus In 2021

Hi guys, I know this is a bit of a trivial question and one which you all see too often, but I’ve gotta ask.

I’ve been running circles around my tail on the internet trying to figure out which antivirus software is the lightest one for my pc. I currently have a paid version of McAfee Livesafe (since it was only 23 dollars due to the Asus laptop discount). I don’t do much online, all my work related video files are stored remotely and physically transferred. Safe to say, I don’t need to worry about my security being outstanding.

McAfee currently uses from 130-200 MB on idle, and it has a nasty scan every morning which can use up to 800 MB while it runs. It even sometimes runs twice after the pc boots…

I would appreciate any advice or tips on which antivirus software is the lightest on system usage, mostly idle since when I do my scans, I stop everything else and focus on that. Thanks in advance guys!
