We recommend using a comprehensive antivirus solution to protect your Windows PCs. Although Windows Defender is built into Windows 10, its anti-malware capabilities may not be sufficient to combat ever-evolving threats. Download our free 30-day full-fledged McAfee Total Protection trial in three simple steps today – no credit card required.
