My current preference would be Panda Cloud. It has good detection rates, is lightweight, and works fine with Windows 10.

Which ones did you looked at?

I have been using Avast on Windows 10 without any problems.

Avast site clearly states Windows 10 compatible.

Been using Avast for ages and no problem since 10 update in July. Pop up adverts are irritating but if you get something for nothing you have to suffer a bit.

This is my recommendation too. I have Panda Free on two machines and can't fault it.

The article probably hasn't been updated for Windows 10.

I'm using Avira with Windows 10 and I have no problems apart from annoying pop-ups when it upgrades versions.
