There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no one best anti-virus.

If you don't want to pay, then I would recommend either Sophos Home Free Antivirus or Bitdefender Anti-virus Free Edition if you prefer not to use Windows 8/10 Defender or Microsoft Security Essentials.

For other suggestions, please refer to Choosing an Anti-Virus Program.

Also be sure to read Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware Tools because an anti-virus alone is not enough protection.

Windows 8/10 Defender or Microsoft Security Essentials I think it is same Microsoft Antivirus Software only Windows Defender it's by default you will get it windows 10 or 8 otherwise if you want to download then you search for Microsoft Security Essentials but both are the same Antivirus. I'm also using it it is free Software and also good Antivirus software.

Windows 8/10 Defender provides the same level of protection against malware as Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) provides on older operation systems plus enhanced protection against rootkits and bootkits.
