Windows 7: Whats the very lightest AV program out there?

OEM Windows 7 Ult (x64) SP1


Mods, I lost track in the previous reply of where I was posting.

It may be best to please split off everything below the first sentence (about MSE compatibility problems) and to move the remainder to the working "Latest Version" thread?

<Your call>

Sorry about that.

Thank you,

Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

This is what security programs I run active and they have worked well together for years.

Microsoft Security Essentials.
Malwarebytes Anti Malware Premium.
Windows 7 built in Firewall.

I don't know exactly what footprint they all have together because I don't really care. They work and that is what counts.
