Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Is Windows Defender necessary???

I let Windows 7 Pro 64 update a bunch of windows files via Windows Update... including Windows Defender.

Windows Defender now seems to think my KPT5 Photoshop Plugin filter is evil... and has (I think) been causing chaos with my Photoshop program....

So, I turned it off.

Is that ok?

And if it is ok, can I get rid of them message with the 'red x' in my taskbar saying there is a PC issue that needs resolved? Which takes me to the Windows Defender area and says I should turn it 'on.'

What do you think?
