I use AVG, they have a free version. You can just google it to find it.

I'm a big fan of Kim Komando's site, www.komando.com, and she has a variety of options listed there. I still pay for my anti-virus (probably unnecessary! :P), but I've used Kim's advice to find many other types of software, including ones to eliminate malware, and I think her recommendations are very reliable.

Since the unpaid version of Malwarebytes does not operate in the background, you could probably use either way!
It may run faster if you turn off other virus software.
It takes approx. 5 minutes to run a fast scan.

I am using an older computer, that i can`t even have that kind of software. Isn`t it better to pay for antivirus or is it the same for free ones just as paying for them.

I think if you like a free antivirus you should support them by buying their upgraded service. But the fact is that there is not one antivirus that can catch everything, since new viruses are created every minute. So IMO, free is the way to go.
