There will be no conflicts. Defender is an anti-spyware program that you can run alongside your anti-virus.
Hello to all,
Although, I have searched and read this site before for answers, this is my first post here. Seems that my experience is different than quietman7's. Here what happened....
For over a year, I have run AVG free version, 3 anti-spyware programs and Windows firewall on XP Pro, all with frequent pattern updates and with no problems. Recently updated all to latest versions and added Windows Defender.
Upon rebooting everyday, I started getting a message from AVG saying a a component was in error state and that I needed to reboot. The component was AVG update manager. Naturally, rebooting did not help, nor did manually updating the AVG pattern file. Nor did scans.
When I disabled Windows Defender and rebooted, the problem was gone. Any way to make Windows Defender play nice with AVG? Thanks.
