Hello claudiu_botezatu and welcome to the Trend Micro Community!

Thank you for your additional insight.

You can stay protected with the Windows Defender that is pre-installed with your Windows Operating System.

Installing the Trend Micro Security provides an additional layer of protection on your computer as well as replaces the Windows Defender as your Anti-Malware solution.

You can check the link that our friend Tom Emmelot posted on this thread to check what are the features that you can get on installing the Trend Micro Security for home users.

Should you have further inquiries or concerns, feel free to post on the community in the future.

Best Regards,
