Windows 10, I just realised I am running Windows Defender as well as McAfee anti virus which comes automatically with BT broadband. Sometime in the past I recall reading you are not supposed to run two anti virus programmes simultaneously or they will clash with each other. I have noticed no problems, but should I close down or disable Defender?

Yes, I use Defender & it does provide antivirus & antimalware...good thing is, it updates a number of times per day so is always current. I ditched Avast free some time ago. Not experienced any problems on 3 machines using Defender on Win 10 at all.
