Re: Windows Defender will not auto start
actually not exactly true
all virus protections even disabling them from running in startup will still
run in the backround in some form. I have seen them start a scan even when
not running in startup.
To be safe it is better to uninsall the 2nd virus protection.
There is really no reason to run two of them anyway- that is major overkill
