Cortana is Clippy the MSWord paperclip's lovechild.   8)

AVG (free) is working for me and not taking up too much RAM.

Do a search on AVG. I *vaguely* recall some sort of security or tracking problem with them a couple of years ago.

I nam sure this was an RC recommendation:

I use it on every new win 10 computer.

On all Win10 machines I've always put Malwarebytes on them. Works really well and the machines are still nippy running it.

Update:

While it was running okay on 8GB RAM, I took Mr. Mackin's advice and added more for a total of 16GB.  Slight increase in speed but you would barely notice, but everything is now somehow smoother which I like.
