    I cant decide on what one to choose to run with zemana free?
    Avira free has been on my computer for years now,was wondering what else is out there that is just as good,i download alot of torrents,movies and ect.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I use Tencent PC Manager, it's extremly light, has good detection due to it using Bitdefender signatures and gets program updates every week or so.

    Edit: Now that I think of it, it's probably not the best option to run alongside Zemana, as it detected by Zemana. You can add it to the whitelist, but whenever a never version of PC Manager is released it will be detected again. Still, it would be a good choice if you weren't using Zemana.

    Another option would be AVG, as it is also very light, and has good detection rates.

    Been running Sophos Home free lately. Plenty light and a lot is cloud-based.

    I used Avira many years ago when it was not widely known.
    Does the free version still contain pop-up ads? I know Avast! Free doesn't.
