    I use wifi as my room is on on one end of the house and the modem is on the other side

    You don't say the exact Model but if it's one like ASUS Eee PC 4G Specs - CNET or and You're still running XP, I'd suggest replacing it with Linux.

    In terms of limited available processing power and storage space, stick with Defender instead of adding a 3rd party Antivirus which will place additional demands on both.

    Check if you get any free AV licences from your bank - many UK banks provide free licences.

    I do not really have a bank account which is sort of true. I have a joint account that is there to pay my rent but for my personal business I use a prepaid visa. Long way of saying that the bank method to get an antivirus might not work for me.

    I have an old netbook called an Eee PC and it had XP on it. I was wondering if the built in antivirus that is in windows would suffice or should I look for a free antivirus or try to buy a paid one?
    I know I need to fill the specs out on my profile but will try to do that tonight I think
    XP doesn't have built-in antivirus, only Win8/10. so you have to find one that is light enough for your machine (details of your machine specs will be useful) which is not a simple task.

    I took xp off it but now I have no way to put it back on as I do not have any xp disk.
    I did not like xp except when I have no other choice

    I just use Defender and run MBAM every now and then. I used to use Avast AIS but it has turned into bloatware.
