Windows Defender
« on: January 25, 2018, 07:02:00 AM »
Will Avast Premier play nice with Windows Defender? I'd like to give WD a try, but I don't want to rely on it entirely. Can I run both Avast and Windows Defender? (New HP desktop running Windows 10)

Nope. (Only option would be to set Avast to passive mode)
