Answer
I will just tell you what I use.
I use AVG free for my anti-virus and Malwarebytes for other problems like trojans, spyware, etc.
Both are free and can be obtained safely at www.filehippo.com
AVG is real time protection. Malwarebytes free is manual. To make it automatic and realtime you have to pay for it.
