    If you're not used to installing software with the Custom options, I recommend Unchecky to help prevent Adware/PUP from installing on your PC.

    The default installation of Windows 8.1 comes with UAC enabled.

    A minor correction, Windows Defender is the term used for Windows 8/8.1 PCs. Microsoft Security Essentials is only compatible with Windows Vista and 7. ;)
