Good evening! Microsoft does bundle its own antivirus product in Windows 10 (called Windows Defender), so you would not be left unprotected if you wished to cancel your McAfee subscription. In my professional opinion, I'd recommend to cancel as Microsoft's product is as good as what you're currently paying for.

I hope that helps!

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
