Windows Defender might prompt you to remove some peer-to-peer (P2P)
file-sharing programs. If you choose to remove such a program, Windows
Defender deletes all the contents of the Program Files folder associated
with the P2P program. Because some P2P programs store downloaded files in a
default folder under Program Files, this might remove all files you have
downloaded through the file-sharing program. For example, KaZaA stores .exe
and .dll files at C:Program FilesKazaa. Downloaded files are stored at
C:Program FilesKazaaMy Shared Folder. If you use Windows Defender to
remove KaZaA, all files and folders under C:Program FilesKazaa are
removed. If you have installed any P2P file-sharing programs, it is a good
idea to back up your downloaded files before you run Windows Defender.
You do not need to remove other antispyware or antivirus programs to run
Windows Defender. Other programs or Windows Defender might prompt you to
allow or block an action, but there are no other known incompatibilities
between Windows Defender and other antispyware or antivirus programs.
