Default Antivirus Software

OK, what is the latest recommendation for best antivirus software that can be used on the Edius machine? I tried to keep the machine separate with just Edius, but I do need to install some other things, so I want the virus protection. Had major problem over the years with Norton, and was told Bitdefender blocks too many things, and in particular is not good for Edius. I don't care if free or for money... opinions?

Be aware that the next release of Windows 10 (19H1 aka Redstone 6) has changes that will break all AV software that doesn't get updated.

If you want to (or are forced to) upgrade to the new Windows 10 release, make sure your AV vendor is ready, or whatever software you are currently using will stop working.
