    Base off your list, Avast, just note Avast owns AVG. But I don't pay for anti virus for personal use, my workplace use Avast.

    You forgot the biggest dogs. Kaspersky, Bitdefender, and Avira.

    Although I will say that no one needs anything more than MSE/Windows Defender. Plenty of independent tests show that Microsoft's built in AV is just as good as any of the other top options.

    Windows Defender/System Center Endpoint Protection is good enough.

    Will not answers because paying a antivirus in 2019 is like a SCAM to me, defender and common sense always made it work for me.

    Microsoft do a REALLY good job wit their builtin AV since day1 on windows 8

    I personally don't use any. But we sell AVdefender (rebranded bitdefender) to our customers.
    That together with a hardware sophos firewall (SG!) has kept all my clients safe for the past 6 years.
    Before that we used "norman anti-virus"; that was a right piece of shit, never had to recover/restore so much data in my life.

    Isn't Kasperksy Russian? Would you trust them with protecting your PC?

    Windows Defender is pretty good these days. Malwarebytes and HitmanPro for when you run that shady .exe and your PC fans start spinning like crazy.

    Windows Defender has been found to be the best available by independent research, and it's free. Kaspersky was also just involved in a major data leak, so I wouldn't trust them at all.
