    Do I need Anti Virus Software?

    1. No AV software is a 100% guarantee. 2. Defender is a built-in and free AV solution which works. 3. Other AV software will see defender and inactivate it so it no longer functions. 4. Check and see if you ISP provides a AV product for you to use, most of them do and they are free.
