    Does Bit Defender Prohibit Windows Defender From Being Activated Too ?


    Hello.

    Using BitDefender.

    Cant seem to activate Windows Defender (also).

    Does Bit Defender prohibit Windows Defender from being activated ?

    Any idea why I can't activate ?
    Assuming I can, somehow, do I want both ?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    You don't usually want to have more than one antivir program active at once.

    It would seem logical that if one AV product was good 2 should be better. Not true.

    These programs were never designed to work together and the results of doing so are unpredictable. You could end up with less protection than you would have with one. Windows Defender is just doing what it was designed to do in this situation.
