Good day to you all,
I need to make you all aware that there are known issues when McAfee VirusScan Enterprise is installed with Microsoft Defender. McAfee does not provide support for any computer running two anti-virus products. This is the same for any AV vendor.
I found a known issue artcle to back this up.

Just to clarify. Windows Defender is anti-spyware not anti-virus. It is disabled by any McAfee installation but can be re-enabled with no dire consequences.
Yeah, Defender is anti-spyware, not sure why that guy (from McAfee guessing by his logo) would say Defender is anti-virus. I haven't noticed any issues running both at all. Have ran Defender with out anti-virus software as well, no problems.
