Thanks Klitos.  I'll look into that.

I don't think Microsoft supply Security Essentials any more, because it only works with Windows 7 and Microsoft are trying to make everybody move to Windows 10. However, if you were lucky enough to have installed it when Windows 7 was still actively supported, then Microsoft continue to provide updates to Security Essentials to this day.

Thanks for all the advice every-one, I looked at all the options and comments plus a few more that were recommended on SGL and weighed up the prices, and cover on each and have decided to go for BitDefender.

Unfortunately while I dithered the cheap offer that Rafal posted expired.

Just installing it now.
