Avast and Windows Defender Question
« on: May 02, 2015, 05:15:44 PM »
I am not certain if I am posting this in the right spot, please tell me if I am wrong. I am running Windows 7 with Avast free and free Malwarebytes. I uninstalled Microsoft Security Essential when I got Avast. I didn't get rid of Windows defender because it never did anything without permission but today I noticed it scanning my computer after a recent windows update. I don't still need this tool do I? This won't disable my firewall correct?
Sorry for all the noobie questions.

1. No, you can disable it.
2. That's correct.
