I don't know but some AV developers protect their AV by telling us to uninstall other AV before installing theirs

It seems that at every given chance someone recommends MSE even when the OP is using a competent alternative and has expressed no displeasure with their current solution.
There is a reason for that. MSE is the nearly the only antivirus that does not create problems with Win 7 systems. Not everyone has problems with other antivirus programs; bu if you read the BSOD threads, you will see that just about every program other than MSE has caused problems.

And it is free. I do not see the sense in paying for a program when I can get one for free that is just as good.

No, I do not use MSE.

There is no doubt that MSE is a good choice for some but there is a reason for threads like these: What's the Best Anti-virus?

Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).
 
 

Keeping it relatively simple here: Avast (free) + Windows Defender (free) + Windows Firewall + MBAM (paid-for version)

I always leave Defender running alongside Norton Internet Security. Microsoft often redflags some adware Symantec didn't have a look at yet. Example, flvdirect

If they disabled Defender, MSE style, I would seriously reconsider using NIS further.. And I probably wouldn't be using it now if I hadn't got it 4 free..
