    can someone tell me a privacy focused antivirus program.

    or can we substitute adguard for an antivirus program.

    or what to do for your pc security without compromising personal information.

    Does such a thing even exist?
    Basically all AV/Internet Security on the market currently require to download definitions often and depend on the cloud with features like Kaspersky Security Network, reputation based security in Defender etc.
    The cold hard truth is that there's no privacy online, you can make things harder for people to identify you and what you do, but governments will be able to do that anyway. If you really want to delay the outcome as much as possible, use multiple VPNs and be smart online.
