run reg add "HKLM\Software\Avast Software\Avast\Wsc" /v IReallyWantDefenderOnAndDecreasedPerformanceOnLegacySystems /t REG_DWORD /d 42 /reg:32 as administrator
I guess you are talking about Command Prompt ?
BTW I'll wait for the stable version since I am not a beta tester of security software.

I've just made an option for you but you will need to wait for another release (not sure if the next one with passive mode or one after). All what you will need is to create DWORD value "IReallyWantDefenderOnAndDecreasedPerformanceOnLegacySystems"=42 (0x2a) in HKLM\Software\[WOW6432Node]\Avast Software\Avast\Wsc.
Hello, new to the thread, same issue. I'm on Win7 and want to keep both Defender and Avast.

I know how to open regedit and find software keys, and edit one or two things on a beginning level. But I don't know how to "create DWORD value".  Can you walk me through what to do, (or provide a link that tells how?). I tried googling how but didn't find anything I could understand.

Thanks.

abruptum: Yes, I am speaking about command prompt.

fallingback:
 - just type cmd in the start menu
 - right click on command prompt and choose run as administrator
 - type: reg add "HKLM\Software\Avast Software\Avast\Wsc" /v IReallyWantDefenderOnAndDecreasedPerformanceOnLegacySystems /t REG_DWORD /d 42 /reg:32

But remember it will work from the next version of avast or you can try current beta version.

Thanks,

@ fallingback,
If you don't know what a DWORD is, then I suggest you either try the Beta version of Avast or wait for the next release.
The registry isn't something to play with unless you know what you're doing.
Since Avast already gives you more protection again "malware" that you're getting from Microsoft, waiting a short while isn't going to make
a bit of difference but could prevent you from having a problem. IMHO. :)

Hi.

I understand all positions, but if I want to defend scans only (not activated in real time) avast should not help because it does not conflict with the.

He's trying to say, he only wishes to be able to use Defender as an occasional "on-demand" scanner... [but] not for its real-time protection.

A see another PC (Win 7) with Kaspersky installed and have spyware both enabled.

Well, Windows Defender is disabled from Avast 12.2.2276, but why it not get more Definition Update for Windows Defender by Windows Update?

You answered it yourself, because it's disabled.

Not sure, if it's available already.
But if so, you need to disable Avast self-defense first.

I thought that maybe I should disable self - defence first, but I'll wait for confirmation from petr_matrix.

Asyn is right, I forgot it's the protected area. So you need to disable sef-defence first, run the command as admin and enable self-defence again. Please let me know if it works.

Thanks,
