To Fsecure from Defender

I am trying do download a new Anti-virus & security system. The manufacturer recomends I remove any security items like microsoft defender and any Anti-virus. How do I remove Defender.


Many Thanks
John

Rather than remove/uninstall M$ Defender, you could disable it instead. This way, if you don't like the new security system you can uninstall it and then re-enable M$ Defender.
