Dont cut your ties to the USA. The weather is simply nasty in the summer. 

 

Good move coming in the nastytime though. Get a taste of it right from the get go. I did that when I moved to Alaska. Pulled up to the border at -50 F.

ow, that sounds tough!!  Then -50 F to 90's F. You do like extremes, haha.

So thoughts on antivirus software?

With windows 10 I'm told it has protection already, I only have windows 7 and use Avast free antivirus.

I thought all the windows had Windows Defender?  I use Bitdefender because it has the most up to date anti virus stuff.  Bitdefender Wins 2018 Awards from World’s Top 2 Independent Testing Firms.   https://www.bitdefender.com/news/bitdefender-wins-2018-awards-from-worlds-top-2-independent-testing-firms-3639.html

That IMO is a huge misconception. If it doesn't actually state that the computer comes with OEM Windows installed, then any installed operating systems would need proof of purchase regardless of where you are in the world. To me anyway.

 

As someone mentioned earlier, the internet is the internet, it is a global entity. Operating systems are available everywhere, both legal and not-so-legal, activation software (freely) available if you know where to look for it. One should never assume that because you purchased the computer in a so called 1st world country that everything is legit unless it has been proven that 100% of computer techs in 100% of computer shops are above board.
