    Don't install bitdefender.
    keep trend micro.

    if you want add extra protection then you may install hitmanpro, malwarebytes.

    You can get this advice, you can get that advice, the best advice no matter which one you use ( and you should never run 2 antivirus programs at the same time because they will conflict each other and something will wind up crashing) is to not go to suspicious web sites, do not go to funny or porn sites, do not download software from places you never heard of, do not open attachments you have no idea what they are. One says you need some common sense so when the lightbulb goes on in your head do not shut it off!
