Are ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus compatible with Windows Defender?

 

  • Windows Vista/7: All ESET products are completely compatible with Microsoft Windows Defender. Windows Defender does not contain any antivirus functionality, so you will not need to uninstall or disable Microsoft Windows Defender when installing your ESET security product.
     
  • Windows 8: If you receive a "Detection of installed security software" notification while installing ESET on Windows 8, disable Windows Defender before you continue the installation process. 

This article/content in the ESET KB is from September, 2014: if anyone has information that shows that this information is incorrect (regarding compatibility with Windows Defender), please let us know. As stated, Windows 8 may require disabling in some circumstances.

FYI...in Windows 7 Defender, with real-time protection activated, you do get an advisory message in Action Center.
