So on my main PC I run without any antivirus software, and while dangerous, I'm usually very careful with what I download. I know I should have something monitoring my computer, and between my main PC and laptop (which I share with gf), I think it may be time to get a non intrusive antivirus software running. I always see stuff like Norton but from what I hear it's bloated. I want something small and effective, and something people on this forum would run.

Thanks for any suggestions!

You ask a question we got a lot here at Bleeping Computer. We created this topic to help you get started with getting that answered. Please take a look here: Answers to common security questions - Best Practices Prevention & Choosing an Anti-virus or Firewall and here How Malware Spreads - How did I get infected. That will give you the foundation to refine your search. Once you have read those please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may still have.
