  1. I like it & have used it off & on for years. It runs fine on the Insider preview evaluation version, plus I get it free through my service provider. I would just leave not run any 3rd party anti-virus because it makes it harder to give feed back on defender. There is an up date in the wind on defender, if the update it I will most likely drop MacAfee. I may add Pro as well.
