Windows defender is not that powerful, even with perfect behavior and doing nothing wrong you still have the possibility of downloading an infected file. I would run a routine monthly scan justto make sure. Malwarebytes free is great to have, run it every once in a while and you’ll be absolutely fine.

You likely actually do, if it’s been 4 years...

I really have no interest of doing anything but using YouTube, Spotify, and gaming on my new rig. I just want to make sure it’s protected from anything I’m not aware of.
