Defender is all you need IMO if you are running Windows.

MS has done a great job improving it over the years, and really, why would you want to risk messing up or slowing down your PC with a third party AV?

Makes zero sense to me.

It's all I run.

Also , Chrome has built in Malware protection in its browser ..

So PA's Defender & Chrome should keep you clean....

Or

Take my brothers advice to me ..to stay off Porn Sites!!!



(totally unacceptable tho)

Staying away from porn sites, social media frequented by young people, and don't open suspicious e-mail files, I have found is the best way to avoid computer viruses. My computer virus issues ended the day the last teenage male left the house.

Most do.

Some are painfully slow.

Read the reviews.

Nothing beats an iPad though. But you cannot run windows apps
