Which one? Seems like they are all good, but you don't really know until your data is compromised.

 

My requirement:

 

1. I bought a slower laptop JUST for doing financial transaction. Need something light on resources.

2. I don't think I need ransomware type stuff

3. No other app will be installed except MS Office

4. No email checking

 

I know Windows 10 comes with MS Security Essentials. I read that Webroot is light on system resources. Any thoughts?

Norton AntiVirus Basic 2018 has surely done its homework when it comes to being light on your PC’s resources with an added twist: it is light on your wallet as well.

 

I have been using this software a couple of years ago and it never fails me to protect my computer from malware.

Check out Avast. Highly rated, secure and great on resource utilization.

I would recommend Avast it gives you a secure environment and prevents your device from malware.

I have always used the free version of Avast. Even when I switched to a Mac a few years ago I put Avast on it. It has always blocked anything bad and I have no complaints.

Avast works well and prevents your devices from malware attacks.
