Protection, ease of use, and cost
Lifehacker editors recommend avast! Free Antivirus for the best balance between protection, ease of use, and cost. They choose our 2014 version because it offers
a streamlined, easy to navigate interface and a plethora of on-access scanning and protection tools. It's still one of the top picks available, according to AV Comparitives and AV-Test, and performs well in antivirus tests.
Avast offers an on-access antivirus scanner... and also features an on-demand scanner you can run at any time. It updates quietly in the background without fuss, and has a "silent" mode where you can disable any and all notifications and warnings to keep performance slim and trim. The app itself is relatively resource light—you may not even notice it's there. Best of all, it's completely free.
A good antivirus tool doesn't have to cost a ton of money, and it doesn't have to drag your system down either. ~ wrote Alan Henry in his article.
