What security suite do you recommend? Besides Windows Defender, of course.

Besides Windows Defnder, what’s the best security suite?

I just bought my sister her very first Windows laptop as she’s always been a Mac user. The laptop is a HP Pavilion Gaming one that came with McAfee LiveSafe pre-installed and the first thing I did was uninstall it for obvious reasons. I have Windows Defender activated and updated but I was wondering if there is better software out there? Especially when it comes to monitoring shady and spam websites and such.

I use Malwarebytes on my PC to periodically scan for viruses but I have been a Windows user forever and I know better than to access sketchy websites or click on ads, but I cannot say the same for her and I’m worried the laptop would get screwed for that reason.

Any ideas and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks a lot!

I generally use kaspersky for my less savvy parents and it’s never been an issue.
