Built in is fine and has been for the past 5 years or so

McAfee/Norton/whatever still come bundled because they pay vendors to pre-load it on your computer, but Microsoft has taken security seriously now and their built in stuff (Defender, firewall, web blocking) is just as good if not better than any third-party stuff for consumers.

First thing I do when I buy a new computer is uninstall McAfee. Windows is now smart enough to re-enable its own security stuff automatically when you do.
