Does Window 7, which comes with Windows Defender installed, need any other antivirus software? (In other words, can't Windows Defender do it all?)
No, it can't come close to doing it all. Windows Defender is not an
anti-virus program, it's an anti-spyware program, and not even the
best one of those.
You definitely should install anti-virus software. Stay away from
Norton and McAfee, the two most popular anti-virus programs, but among
the worst. I recommend eSet NOD32, if you are willing to pay for it.
If you want a free anti-virus, I recommend one of the following three:
Microsoft Security Essentials
You also need better anti-spyware software. I recommend that you
download and install (both freeware) MalwareBytes AntiMalware and
