Staying safe on the computer

I'm always careful to make sure my anti-virus software is up to date and today received notification that it expires in early January and can be automatically renewed.
They want £69.99 for automatic renewal. I can purchase the same item direct from them as a new customer for £29.99 and from Argos for £22.99.
As a special offer because I'm an existing customer they'll send me a £15 voucher if I renew. Tough decision but I think I'll decline their generous offer.
Mine’s like that, I start a new one every year.
Download Avira Free-Antivirus from Filepuma or Techspot downloads ; it costs nothing and is just as effective as the 'paid for' versions .
Used it for years !
If you've got an account with Barclays and registered for on-line banking you can get Kaspersky free and renewed each year - for PC and mobile
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
Take a look at ssome of these ; don't be ripped off by 'paid for' anti-virus

Posted twice , my mistake !!
I use Windows Defender which comes with Windows 10 and had no problems.
Also run Malwarebytes (free version) as added protection.
I use AVG and Spybot - both free.
