ninite.com is a good starting place for different tools and utilities

Malwarebytes...

steam, origin and uplay

vlc and winrar

Personally, and I'm no expert mind, but I tend to put on CCleaner, Office, Firefox, 7-Zip and Defraggler.

Just leave it alone and use common sense. Windows has anti-virus/malware built in anyway. Don't open any exes or anything else if you don't know where it has come from. Don't open any attachments in emails where you don't know the source or respond to emails asking for passwords. Be careful with any popups like fake antivirus etc (force close the browser if you have to)

It is worth installing an adblock extension on whatever browser you use as this can stop malware getting in. You can disable for sites you want to support

O&O ShutUp10 and your MoBo, graphics card and printer drivers etc.
Plus a firewall.

Windows Defender is useless, in recent real life tests it score less than 75% detection rate; anything less that 98% and you might just as well not bother.

Windows 7 dual boot for internet, no ads, few quid from ebay.
