Is there any advantage to run 360 and windows defender at the same time? Or is there a conflict like when you run 2 virus programs at the same time? I just can't seem to find any info on this. Thanks for your help

You can leave Windows Defender on, it runs alongside Norton without any problems and is compatible with Norton. Usually, it is not recommended to have two realtime security programs running at the same time. However, Windows Defender is an exception; you can read more over here in Yogesh's post (although the thread addresses NIS 2009, it is also applicable to Norton 360 version 4, which is based on NIS 2010, the successor of NIS 2009):
You can also have a look at dbrisendine's post over here:
And here's another post by Yogesh with regard to Windows Defender and Norton 360:
Hope this information helps :-)
I myself have Windows Defender and NIS 2010 turned on and running side by side.
