Two anti viruses running at once causes problem

So you know how windows defender (windows free anti virus) comes with every device? So, People say that it’s bad to have two anti viruses running at once. Does that mean i also should disable windows defender to instal and use Norton? Thank you.

Re: Two anti viruses running at once causes problem

When you install Norton, the install process disables the real time monitoring functions of Windows Defender. Do not try manually disabling Defender services as they are necessary for other Windows functions like Windows Update.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
