Does every Shaw customer automatically have Shaw Secure and does it fully protect ones PC or laptop?
Google "best free av software".
The top result/s should have some suggestions.(And a chart to the ratings they got.)
Then decide which option is best suited to your needs. (Including Shaw Secure.)
I've never had the issues I had with Shaw Secure with several of the free options....when I used them. (Currently I run no AV software.)
If you have internet, you get Shaw Secure free.

Though, personally, I'm not a fan of it. It was more trouble that it was worth. (Considering I've been AV software free 80% of the time I've been on the internet, and not one problem in this regard.)
There are better, less annoying options out there. It's your computer though, and it's up to you.
Just my 2 cents.
Can you elaborate on... "better options"?
