Answers :

Hi there.
If anything the only thing that comes with the OS is windows defender and windows firewall (unless you got the machine with the OS preinstalled)
I would recommend AVG 8.5 Free as its just about the best antivirus software out there and you need antivirus software to protect the system from attacks and threats.

Get AVG 8.5 here >>>>>>
