Windows Defender

Hi guys, I recently installed Microsoft Security Essentials on my laptop. I was wondering, do I need to turn Windows Defender on as well for protection?

    Microsoft Security Essentials is the replacement for Windows Defender.

    Not only that, but the installation process for MSE will detect
    Windows Defender and turn it off! Windows Defender is only
    a scan on demand antimalware defense, whereas MS Security
    Essentials is an always on defense.
