Is it OK to ask about McAfee vs Windows Defender?

I bought a new LG Gram from Costco and it came with a free year of McAfee, I hate McAfee because it tries to change my browser and search engines.

I always used Windows Defender on my PC’s before this, is there any reason NOT to remove McAfee from this laptop and just use what came with it from Windows?

I also have the premium Malwarebytes running.

This forum is for people who are using the Samsung smartthings ™ home automation platform so all of the questions and answers are assumed to be in that context. It’s not for general discussion of computer issues. So if you can make your question relevant to smartthings, that would work. :sunglasses:

Otherwise, I suggest trying one of the more relevant forums at reddit or one of the pc security discussion communities.

Since security issues are often model dependent, I suggest trying the discussion forum for your laptop manufacturer:
