If you have installed Windows 10 Version 1709 (newest Windows 10 system), Windows Defender is very good and includes elements of EMET (Microsoft Security tool now built into Defender). There are a number of browser and exploit protections - some are on by default and others can be turned on if you need them.

Just enable Windows Defender and that's it. WD is enough for you.
Every device should be protected somehow. So some kind of protection is necessary.

If you are browsing a lot of potentially dangerous pages, you should run Malwarebytes from time to time.

John knows more about windows 10 than I do, but I have yet to meet an OS that I trust completely.  I install hitmanpro.alert on my win 10 machines.

I would recommend MacAfee since they got bought out by Intel.  Only around $15 a year for all the devices in your home.
