In my experience Windows Defender is perfectly accessible and does a fine job.
Yup.  If you're using Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 then Windows Security is the way to go.

Look at the most recent testing results from the following antivirus/security testing labs, along with the historical results from the past several years if you want to see how Windows Security/Defender has been performing.  Windows Security has been solidly in the top 10, often top 5, and frequently beats out several well-known competitors that one must pay for.

MRG Effitas  (360 Protection Testing Category)

The fact that it's turn it on and forget it, for the vast majority of users, as well as being accessible makes it an ideal choice.
