    I'm currently using AVG. Works find but be sure to disable Windows Defender.

    I think AVG should automatically disable Defender. It doesn't need to be uninstalled, just switched off.

    OP, you can open Task Manager, click the services tab, right click Defender and stop or disable service.

    Useful tip- Ctitanic probably has no idea you've asked a question of him. If you want to get his attention, then you need to tag him in your post, by putting an @ directly in front of his username.
