  • Hi,

    I would recommend to stay with Windows Defender enable. Vipre offers very good protection but Win Def will give same extra malware protection.

    Thanks for the input. But do you know if it's OK to keep both on at the same time? Or do I have to use one of the there for them to work???

  • Hi,

    I would say; stay with Windows Defender as it is a good software to reduce the risk of specific types of spyware and other unwanted software.

    If you however, use Vipre Premium that yes, you may disable Windows Defender, because Vipre Prm already ccontains ani-spyware software.

    If you need directions how to disable Win Defender, let me know, I will send you a guide (what is your Windows Ver?).
