another option that could work is malwarebytes premium, but it doesn't seem particularly user friendly and lacks some of the nicer features of the bigger programs.
Malwarebytes Premium is NOT an antivirus.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not an anti-virus program nor should it be used as a replacement. Malwarebytes does not act as a real-time protection scanner for every file like anti-virus software so it is intended to be a supplement, not a substitute. The following quote is a statement from the Malwarebytes Team.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not meant to be a replacement for antivirus software. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a complementary but essential program which detects and removes zero-day malware and "Malware in the Wild". This includes malicious programs and files, such as viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, dialers, spyware, and rogue applications that many antivirus programs do not detect or cannot fully remove. It is important to note that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware works well and should run alongside antivirus software without conflicts. In some rare instances, exclusions may need to be set for your specific antivirus product to achieve the best possible system performance.
Thus, you need both an anti-virus and an anti-malware program...together they provide the most comprehensive protection.
Having said that, I use Eset Smart Security. It does its job and doesn't bog down the 5 systems I have it installed on.
I'm not a big fan of what "THEY" say about the various products. I try something and make up my own mind. Eset has never let me down, despite what "THEY" say about detection rates.
Eset does have a trial. If you use it, make sure to check the option for Enable protection against potentially unwanted programs.
This is my favorite feature of Eset.
