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?

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.
