Windows 7: Turning Anti-Virus/Spyware OFF/ON

Turning Anti-Virus/Spyware OFF/ON

Hope this is the right sub-forum. Anyhoo, I'm getting a msg that BitDefender AND Windows Defender are both running, and will slow down performance. Why isn't there a simple switch to turn either of them off/on? Where IS the switch. I've got 2 Windows 7 PC's running side by side, config'ed the same (in that regard) but each one has different msgs showing up. Please don't make this too complicated.
