HP Stream 11.6", Celeron, 4GB RAM, 64GB emmc, Royal Blue, Windows 10 Home in S mode, 11-ak0090wm (purchased from Walmart)
I bought this for a friend who is in another state. I'm trying to help her with it because she has very limited knowledge of the computers. I am not familiar with this one. Does she need to download an antivirus program? I found this but I'm confused - "
we recommend all Windows devices use antivirus software. Currently, the only antivirus software known to be compatible with Windows 10 in S mode is the version that comes with it: Windows Defender Security Center. Windows Defender Security Center delivers a robust suite of security features that help keep you safe for the supported lifetime of your Windows 10 device. For more info, seeWindows 10 security.
Also note that by exclusively using apps from the Microsoft Store and browsing safely with Microsoft Edge, Windows 10 in S mode keeps you running more quickly and securely day in and day out.
If you want to use another antivirus software provider, you can ask if they offer a product that runs on a Windows 10 device in S mode."
Hope you can help. Thank you (It would be nice if HP offered human help without charging you $14.99 a month! )
