firewall on or off?

I know that when installing antivirus(KIS PURE) windows firewall is disabled but what about windows defender?When I usually disable some of unnecessary windows services I usually disable both of these two W. firewall and W. Defender so my question would be is that OK?

Windows Defender is an anty spyware program. As KIS includes antyspywares too, you can easily disable windows defender.

thanks for fast answer... I was wondering, I had a question about roaming how to delete it or disable but the link to my thread doesn't exist instead instead it says that I must contact administrators.This seems to me like easier way to get an answer so way was my thread erased?
