    Is it safe to use both Kaspersky and Windows Defender?


    Is it safe to use both Kaspersky and Windows Defender? Or it is better completely disable windows defender and only use Kaspersky?

    You can leave WD to do "sporadic runs" alongside another AV product. Your call.

    You can set up Defender to do periodic scanning in parallel with Kaspersky antivirus.

    Defender automatically turns off if you install a other recognised AV package. Having both online simultaneously can cause conflicts and reduce performance significantly. As others say, you can scan periodically with Defender in offline mode.
