Defender antivirus provides internet security at a lower price.

What other advice do I have?

Defender Pro or Home Basic antivirus provides some sort of security against the latest internet threats, but going for the reputed Anti-virus software like Symantec Endpoint, Quick Heal, etc. would be a wiser choice. The price of this program may be a bit lower, but safety of you and your computer is of greater importance.
