    Same for the libraries ending in 64.
    But really, it does not matter. You just can't have a working AV on x64 OS without these.

    To be effective in a 64 bit OS an AV product must have at least some 64 bit components. But there is no need and little benefit in having everything 64 bit. 64 bit processes aren't inherently faster than 32 bit and in some cases they will be slower. 64 bit has some major advantages but they will not be significant in all situations. As modern AV products will have multiple processes there is no reason why they can't have both. If there is an existing 32 bit component that operates well in a 64 bit OS there is no reason why it must be updated to 64 bit. And be aware that a 64 bit component that performs the same function will tend to consume more memory and disk space than a 32 bit version.

    An AV application may be installed in the (x86) folder but there is no reason (technical or otherwise) why it cannot contain 64 bit components as well.

    Edit: In a 64 bit OS 32 bit applications must run in an artificial 32 bit environment. The native 64 bit environment is an alien one in which a 32 bit process cannot run. Most applications run just fine in such an environment. But AV products are quite different. The application must be able to see things as they really are, not the 32 but environment created for them. Only a 32 bit process can do that. Modern AV products must also have kernel drivers and 32 bit drivers cannot run in a 64 bit OS.

    Webroot, very small footprint. To be honest, I cant remember the last time I saw a virus other than cryptolocker and variants of. I see much malware and adware and junk. I turn it off constantly, don't need it. However, user smarts are the best security, I still have folks open attachments from emails of dubious origin.

    I am a enterprise network admin and most users are idiots when it comes to security, even after you school them, gotta lock them down cause they are their worst enemies.

    Yep!

    Some of the things I've read say defender is not actually the fastest performance wise (not speaking about scan speed). I was going with avira but got tired of all the pop UPS. Currently using avast!. I'm willing to change if a faster free av is advised.

    What popups?
    [spoiler]
    if you disable avgnt (avira control center) from running at startup with something like Autoruns, you hardly see any popups (only on full product version updates, not on definition updates)

    Defender
    MalwareBytes
    Emsisoft Emergency Kit

    I would vote for Kaspersky

    I run virtual copies of win10 on a host machine. The instances that have windows defender disabled on them and use webroot run noticeably faster. If I use a 3rd party anti-virus, I like to make sure defender is disabled. Great way to kill performance is run 2 anti-virus apps.

    I think Kaspersky is "not yet ready for prime time" where W10 is concerned.
