Default Recommended Anti-virus for Windows 10 ?

What is the recommended Anti-virus that should I use for personal use on my home PC.
I have 5 years old PC with Windows 10 installed.
It does not need to be free software, I just care about having a good product.
Also, how is the Defender that comes with Windows 10? is it any good ?

Defender for windows 10 is pretty good. But really dont need it if your careful. you will want to be sure you are updating everything -- OS, browser, Flash, etc. Microsoft Defender is a good thing to run, but nothing can completely protect you from your own online behavior.

The best is there already built in. The Windows 10 Defender/Security Suite is enough good, if not to say it's the best what is available at all.
