I just set up my new Mac home pc. What security software should I purchase? Recommendations?
The running software Catalina, version 10.6. Should I turn on Firewall?
Thanks

I would advise switching the firewall on.
I use MalwareBytes to scan for malware, and I also use Avira antivirus occasionally, I am pretty careful about what I download and where I download it from and have not had any problems as yet.
Clamxav also gets good reports.

Cheers to what Lufbrarunner says above! Excellent advice. And I own and use ClamXAV from time to time. Also, every so often I'll download and run Malwarebytes. It does a decent job.

Besides those precautions he states, and the software, the other thing to do is as much disk cleanup/maintenance/repairs as possible. You can actually do a good amount of disk cleanup on your own, and there are some excellent programs available (both free and commercial) that help you with all 3 of those tasks.
