Both Microsoft Defender and Avast antivirus active
« on: June 09, 2022, 09:46:58 AM »
Hi all...

Recently I have updated the latest avast free antivirus. I did not do online update but I downloaded free offline installer, then I uninstalled current installation and reinstalled using offline installer, I always click minimum protection.
And I noticed something, windows defender is active. In the past, when I click on windows defender a warning pop up used to appear: you have already have an antivirus etc... maybe avast maybe windows itself used to deactivate windows defender but now (avast 22.5 free) both antivirus is active. Is this normal?

windows 8.1 64 bit. thanks.
