    I bought this laptop about 2 months ago. Its an Asus ROG Gaming laptop. Windows 10 the whole works. All the trial anti virus software just ended. Whats the best free software I can get from TPB or anywhere else to protect my laptop?

    Kaspersky has gotten a lot better. Really the only one that I recommend just from personal use. Commodo is also pretty good but not the best *free* one out there.

    The AV that usually comes on the PC is poop and takes a lot of memory, i strictly use Malwarebytes.

    eset32 antivirus versions. You can get multiple trial keys from various websites.

    I use eset about 10 years and never had a problem with virus. It also protects you when you web browsing before downloading item, malicious websites, etc.. It's wonderful. And doesn't slow down your pc.

    Doesn't have gimmicky interface and features.

    The AV Windows 10 comes with is more than just poop, its complete garbage with poop on top. You cannot completely disable it though, and unless you are downloading sketch files AV is pointless. Just go without....

    On my last PC build, I used Avast (Free, but of course has premium features like all "free" antivirus does) and it worked well and I never had problems with any malware or viruses using just the basic version. The default Norton that Windows 10 ships with is total garbage, too many notifications and too much of a pain to workaround when downloading stuff.

    Yeah I second this. I used this with my Mac but it is free, you just don't get all of the features. I actually really liked Avast because it was a really good anti-virus software for free.

    I never said it was, I just have in my experience assessing software after an attack or virus seen that malware-bytes usually cleans up way more of current problems on the web. As long as you know what you're doing and watch what you're doing you won't have any problems. I've been in the game longer bud, that's just my opinion based off my experiences.
