    Have you considered Bitdefender and Eset Nod32?

    Just for info, the above article states some 3rd party AVs are blocking the updates to fix the Spectre and Meltdown attacks. Article contains a graph listing all the AVs. (difficult to c&p).

    Is this antispyware and antivirus or just antivirus?

    All AV's have anti-spyware...

    FYI: for KIS it's been included since? Can Kaspersky Anti-Virus detect spyware?

    I can't tell you what is best, so I will just let you know what I use.
    So far this combination works best for me.

    I use Windows 10 Defender and Windows 10 Firewall. "Active"
    I use Malwarebytes Premium. "Active"

    I use AdwCleaner, Super Anti Spyware, Free on demand only.

    At times I use Eset free online scanner.
    Some times it finds things other programs don't.

    I manually keep all programs updated. That is very important in my opinion.

    I use the Paid version of Bitdefender which is a fully integrated system.

    I set it up and set to "Autopilot" and rarely hear from it, or even know it's running, except for a weekly report and a few Anti-ransomware alerts, any new program will be prevented from writing to, or modifying, any "protected" areas, until I review and allow it

    As a complete system it is unlimited devices and works with Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS devices so provides a multi-point defence against threats getting onto my systems

    Yes it costs money, but, for me, 35 a year is acceptable, and the free version uses the same technologies as this version, but without the integration, and BD is regularly at the top of the Comparative sites and has been for a long time
