According to PC magazine...Avast Free Antivirus is the best free antivirus protection for 2019.
Here's a link to their comparison chart:

Malwarebytes is anti-malware software, not anti-virus.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition would be right for you.

Most major ISPs provide free Antivirus. Have you checked with your internet provider? Might be worth a call (or checking their website)

I think free antivirus works for all time but it provides limited no. of protection.

I had Avast for years but got to the point that my old PC seemed doomed to be replaced. I tried PC Matic in desperation (they offered a free trial period) and it is like having a new PC. PC Matic is not free but IMO worth every dollar. I think I'll be keeping my machine for a few more years.
