Well this hasn't changed in many years and is what we have been suggesting for a long time. 

At least this one is a more recent article for reference than the older ones.
Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ WinXP ProSP3/ avast! free 18.4.2338/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.8.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security

No need to touch Defender as Avast automatically disables it, and you cant remove Defender as it's part of the operating system.
