I was just going to do a fresh install but then I remembered that I didn't buy Windows 10 and upgraded from Windows 8. So Im not sure if I even can do a clean install of windows 10...


If you are reinstalling on the same hardware a clean install should work just fine.

I use BitDefender Free edition. They consistently rank among the highest in detection rates and it uses very little resources compared to some others. Never been nagged or even gotten a marketing email from them.


Bitdefender user here, by far the best one I've used, but I'm a paid user and no issues for like 5+ years.
+1 "uses very little resources"
 
I actually tried and uninstalled the following...
AVG, Avast, Kaspersky, Trend Micro, Norton and ESET

| EVGA Z68 FTW | EVGA GTX 780 Ti SC 3GB | EVGA GTX 560 Ti Maximum Edition | Custom EK Water Loop | Red Harbinger Cross Desk
| i7 2600K @ 4.5GHz @ 1.24v | Corsair 16GB Vengeance | Corsair Neutron 256GB SSD | Corsair AX850 | Lamptron FC5V3 | ASUS VE278 27" |
| Creative Inspire T6160 5.1 & X-Fi Fatal1ty 7.1 Champ | Razer Marauder & Spectre & Tiamat 7.1 | Affiliate Code: 3MHCIBME48 |

I've used Norton for a long time. Many years too. I have no problems.

Norton isn't as good as it used to be. I prefer either Kaspersky or just Microsoft Defender.

Norton for me, used to have avg on my old laptop, Norton seems to be a better (lighter) performer.

Norton has been improved a lot over the years. Many negatives were addressed, and fixed.

Agreed. Years ago Norton was a bloated pig relative to other offerings on the market, but they completely revamped their product and it has been a very competent low-profile low-maintenance software package for quite a few years now. I also have MalwareBytes.

Bitdefender user here too...paid also. But after having trojans on my system twice with Norton and Kaspersky locking down functions I wanted and blocking games even though I changed setting to not do that...
 
Anyway, I've had zero problems with Bitdefender. It's small in resource usage, does it's job and doesn't bother me with popups or being overly aggressive....unless I tell it to do so.

I have been using Kaspersky Internet security with Malwarebytes on several computers for several years and have had zero problems.
There is always a rebate sale on Kaspersky, many times it was free with the rebate.


Kaspersky is very good, but digs too deep for me. I like to game sometimes and it kept blocking my multiplayer game from launching...repeatedly even after I made exceptions for it within Kaspersky. I think after a while it got paranoid and didn't want to let anything through ;) 
 
These days I use Bitdefender. It has a small footprint, very good antivirus, phishing, and malware package and it's got a "gaming' feature that stops it from updating while you're gaming and allows the games to run without interference.
