I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

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.

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.
