@Fred 04 Apr 2020. When you install your own antivirus e.g. Avast, AVG, etc, Windows Defender switches itself off by default.
This for the conflict reasons as explained by Bob in the article.
However, if you need to temporarily disable your own antivirus, Windows Defender also remains disabled unless you turn it on deliberately.
If you have temporarily disabled you own AV, don't forget to turn it back on again, or if you have used the "turn back on in 10 minutes" function, you should check that it has done so.
