    You don't tend to get just AV these days, everything comes with loads of value added shite.

    I've used ESET in the past as it was considered to put the least overhead on a systems. I've inherited Sophos and it's ok, but there was a conflict with a Windows update recently that brought half my estate to it's knees.

    But these are corporate versions, I've no idea whats good in the domestic market. What does the Gartner Magic Quadrant say?

    That's 2018 report, my google isn't up to the 2019 version.

    I imagine it's much the same. 'The Daddies' are Trend Micro Symantec and Sophos

    Sophos do a home version for free with good basic protection and filtering in place.
