Best free antivirus?

I think my computer is effed up. And i wanna run a scan with an antivirus. Which one should i use?
Run a scan with malwarebytes antimalware first and if no issues, install bitdefender av free. If you are using windows 10, the built-in windows defender works just fine.
The only good + sincere free antivirus is Microsoft Security Essentials.
I learned the hard way, not to use "free" antivirus offered by software developers.
After a while they screw up your PC and push you to buy their product.
Pay for antivirus. The cheapest one will do.

Avast, avast, avast.... Why???
(avast is the weakest)
Have you ever heard about Windows Defender?!!!!

If not, there is Avira and Bitdefender free antivirus!
Definitively better choice, better in detection and removing malware!
