MS Security Essentials and Windows Defender

  Newbolt 15:41 29 Nov 2009

Running XP Home SP3, and have been using Windows Defender for some time. Having found AVG 9.0 slows things down I deleted it and installed MS Security Essentials a few days ago.Do I actually need both, as although Windows Defender is set to scan each day at 0900 it seems to be switched off when I check. Is that am MS Security Essentials effect, or maybe something else?

Defender is included in Security Essentials.
