Well you can definitely run Windows Defender and AVG together as Windows Defender is anti spyware and AVG is anti virus.

sReKcAh,
Both the programs you list are compatible.
You may note at times that AVG will turn Defender off. Just restart it. Make sure "Use Real Time Protection" is ticked.

Yeah, right... !

But, I dont use any antivirus or spyware... since I love to catch the viruses and spywares manually most of the times. Just I install antivirus to remove them at that time
