add/remove Windows Defender ???

How can I remove Windows Defender from Win7Ultimate? I am using Comodo AV and don't believe I need the defender.

Thanks for your time

WIN key + F1 | type Turn Windows Defender off in the search box.

Win key is that one with the funny looking wavy flag on it.

Hello Bob,

Sorry, but you cannot remove Windows Defender since it is part of Windows 7. You can turn Windows Defender off though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Windows Defender keeps prompting me that it is not active when I first boot up the computer and sometimes when installing a new program. Is anyone else having this problem?
