The built-in Windows Defender is pretty good these days (inside)

Years ago it was crap and you really needed a separate antivirus program but today Windows Defender is good.
Just make sure it is fully enabled enabled - green across the board.

If you do install another antivirus program make sure you have Windows Defender disabled. Just worked on a PC for an old man - he had 3 antivirus programs running at the same time - smh - totally bogged down his system.

Also, Windows Defender has the ability to run a boot time scan (link below). This scans your PC at boot and before Windows even loads - this is the best scan.
