    Windows Defender is sufficient.

    (MSE won't install anyway!)

    There are other utilities to enhance your protection, but, I will let those who use them advise in further comments.

    Windows Defender & Firewall are the W10 version of Security Essentials! That's why MSE won't install under W10.
