Go to control panel and open windows defender then click tools or options and untick the use this program box and you should get a confirmation that the program was closed.

Inside WD settings you can disable the real-time protection and the on demand scanning of it.
Anyway, you can let it running. It won't hurt and it's compatible with avast.
