New to this forum and just purchased a Dell All-in-One PC with free trial McAfee Security.
Old PC (Win 7) uses Windows Firewall, MSE, Ccleaner and Malwarebytes - all free.
What are my best free options to cover all bases?
Any help appreciated.

I would just use the Windows Defender that comes with Windows 10.
CCleaner is not an antivirus or antimalware utility, but is good for cleaning and configuring startup items.

Thanks guys - useful info.
Hate paying through the nose for software when a lot of the free stuff is just as efficient.

My opinion is that all antivirus are the answer to a problem that doesn't exist. It's allabunch of baloney. McCafee has a terrible reputation for invading your system, Norton too. Avast is no different, all baloney. I only use FREE MALWAREBYTES. everything else is a marketing ploy to use your computer for ads and popups. If you love antivirus, I have a 2 acre lot on the moon for sale with a view to the beach.
