MASM altenrtaive for windows

So I'm doing assembly with MASM and visual studio, the class is a complete shit show and visual studio will only compile the code after you sacrifice a goat or two. The school lab computers aren't set up for it either, not to mention the AV deletes your programs.

So i need something that works and isn't a cluster fuck for my laptop, the Syntax needs to be identical to MASM, and I wish to code with text editor + stand alone assembler.

what do you guys recommend?
