Just got a new Windows 8 desktop and want to set it up for simplicity for family use. First I want to remove the pre-installed Norton AV. Will Windows Defender automatically turn on? Tried to access it, but cannot seem to get to it with the Norton installed. Also, I noticed i cannot unpin apps from the Start screen. I right click on them and the Unpin option comes up on the bottom and immediately goes away. Have also got a fairly new laptop but did not have the Unpin problem. Any other set up suggestions appreciated as I am moving wifen and family from XP Home into the new millenuium!
Along with Windows Defender, should I add an anti-malware (Had Malware Bytes paid version on old desktop)
