Avast+MS Antir together?
« on: September 13, 2023, 03:55:13 PM »
AVAST
and
Microsoft Windows-Tool zum Entfernen bösartiger Software MRT.exe
and
MS Edge are running high on harddisk usage o_O
after Avast Update to 23.8.6

Is this OK??
Microsoft Antivirus Co-Running also?

When you install a 3rd party antivirus (including Avast), then Windows shut down the Defender antivirus component.

It is possible to have it in on-demand mode only
