Try Clamwin antivirus. it's effective, small, portable and free.

this has popped up so much and I have decided that there just
Avast could have been a great program.
Nod32 was accessible up to a point, it aint now, vipre maybe,
panda antivirus maybe.
To be honest the fact so many lagit programs are being
mistargeted, forcing users like me to have to basically leave vast
parts of the os open to attack is a problem.
Some users have gone so far to exclude their drives from scanning
and that does in deed fix things.
On my new system I am just going to have to exclude my backup
drive from scanning because I just don't trust what windows
defender will do.
As for the rest, I will have to restructure my drive, and exclude
all audio games, all portable apps, all apps, all user installed
programs the only things I will leave with programs in it are
windows and ms programs and my downloads folder and maybe make a
folder for unprocessed files and exclude that.
Basically to use my system securely I will have to exclude pritty
much half my c drive in order to not run into problems.
I may as well not use antivirus alltogether, but I have no choice,
there are just to many false positives to handle.

Is there anything better I could try?
