    Windows Defender activation


    I too got rid of Norton, but I still have another a/v suite on my Toshiba laptop.
    Should Windows Defender be activated? A tech person at the company told me there
    would be no conflict, but that it's up to me.

    In general, is it a good idea to have both running?

    What is the other "suite" you're running? Under normal circumstances, you wouldn't want to have two Anti-virus programs running.

    I noticed you have Webroot running... if you don't want to Windows Defender running, then I suggest you disable it.

    Yes, I have Webroot SecureAnyware. They recommend you definitely activate Windows Firewall,
    but Defender probably isn't necessary. Thanks.
