Hi, I installed the Emsisoft Anti malware program and I see that it has turned off windows defender, just wondering if this is normal, Thanks

Yes.

 

 Since Windows 8/10 Defender includes anti-virus protection, it typically is disabled by the installation of a third-party anti-virus program.  Emsisoft Anti-Malware is an antivirus platform that includes anti-malware protection...EAM combines its technology with Bitdefender Anti-Virus. Windows Defender will remain disabled until that anti-virus software has been completely uninstalled.

AFAIK the free version of EAM does not register with the Action Center, so it will not be counted as an active antivirus program. I do not know if WD will be turned back on automatically, though.

Thank you Bleepin, I still have 28 days to go and will check WD when it runs out.
