    PC antivirus protection

    Hi Everyone,

    I have windows 10 installed on both my laptops. Is windows defender an antivirus. Should I download a free antivirus program from the internet such as AVG free or MacAfee free? Are they safe? How can I protect my laptops from Virus and Malware?
    Any suggestions? Please reply.

    Thank You
