I'm looking for something which will protect me against malware & stuff such as keyloggers while browsing.
Free or otherwise.
My OS etc is listed below.

Many thanks

Do you use Firefox as your browser?  If so, take a look here as a start -  - https://www.lifewire.com/firefox-security-tips-and-tools-2487972  Plus a Google search will bring up plenty of advice. 

There's a ton of ways to prevent attacks but be wary of applying some of them, as an override to the browser's security settings can be counter-productive.  In Firefox, I installed UBlock Origin, Privacy Badger and HTTPs Everywhere as well as working through recommended security settings and (so far) haven't had an issue.  Good browsing methods are key - don't click on a link you don't trust or open a page that carries a warning.

At the end of the day, the best protection is that wonderful piece of kit between the ears...........   ;)
