Our new computer runs Win 8.1. Our ISP is btinternet which comes with free McAfee anti-virus. Win 8.1 comes with free Defender. I appreciate that we shouldn't try to use both so can someone advise me on which one is the better option please.

Only ever use ONE AV program at anytime , otherwise your system will run very slowly and may crash . MSE is a good free AV , McAfee is an average one . Malwarebytes is excellent , free or payed for version .

Thanks Nickf - I think I'm going to leave well alone and stick with Defender.
