Windows Defender is installed as a feature in Windows 8 and is enabled by default. But if you wish, you can use any other 3rd party anti-malware app to protect your computer. If you install one,  Windows Defender will silently turn itself off.

BullGuard, F-Secure, Kaspersky, McAfee, Panda, Norton and Trend Micro have already made their anti-malware apps available for Widows 8 Release Preview.

Make sure you install only one anti-malware app, as it can cause problems on your PC if have two or more anti-malware apps enabled at the same time.

You may also want to avoid installing any other so-called security apps. It’s best to install them only from genuine sources.

Visit Microsoft to see the download links.
