I wouldn't bother with Bitdefender, if you're intent on getting good, I'd personally recommend Sophos or in a pinch Eset,

All day long. I operate a PC retail business and I test antivirus/antimalware/security suites every year to make sure the best one is being recommended. Comodo and Avira have consistently been the best all around performers in this category of PC software. Kaspersky is good but as you said, heavy on resources but not the worst by far. Any one of those three would serve you well, but my findings show Comodo to be the best.

your best bet for internet security is smart browsing. maybe a DNS service if you have kids , otherwise informed browsing is best protection.

I'd say Kaspersky internet security is a good choice, but like you said it is heavy. Especially with kids and their usage. Otherwise smart browsing and a good ad-blocker is the best defense!

I use it and it is light on resources. I’m very satisfied.

why not just use bit-defender free?
Bit defender free is only AV. None of the other security features are present. So in essence, if someone wants to keep using the Windows firewall, then Bitdefender Free would be a good choice.

I have seen that bitdefender internet security has very good reviews..
Year after year it consistently scores 1st or 2nd.

bit defender is quite good. However, they aren't on the market long. I think they appeared sometime around windows 10 release. Sophos UTM is very good, but if you just need antivirus I'd recommend nod32. They've been here for ages and they are pro's. 2nd place goes to avast. Another good AV would be AVG, for whome there is usually a giveway for a year of use, if it's your first time installing it, you should google. Unfortunately, the best firewall's aren't being developed anymore, and the modern stuff simply uses windows filtering platform, which is not good enough for me. All of the mentioned so far are very "heavy", either on integration into OS, or on hdd, or on memory, or all of that, and if you really want something "lite", I would recommend glasswire.

If you feel compelled to have some type of protection on children's computers ,what I would suggest is getting Malwarebytes (the actual paid version) it will cost you around 20 bucks for three computers, for a year. It offers some type of Internet protection but I don't recall what. More importantly what it offers is you can set a password ,so they are unable to change any settings which ,if it's blocked ,they have no choice. This in combination with openDNS has done very well for me and i have several kids, of which 2 are 15 & 17

i like setting a custom screen when a site is blocked (porn for example) which says "if your seeing this, i already know you tried to search something i blocked, so STOP" :)

Knowing children these days not knowing what the internet has is scary. Hmm I don't know what you should use as I just use Defender now for Windows. I used AVAST! in the past though which worked well

Not sure where you got those numbers and years, but I swear I haven't heard of them before windows 10 came out.
