Hi @christos 

While installing McAfee, Windows Defender gets turned off and McAfee starts protecting your system. You can run one Anti Virus at a time. You can't turn On both McAfee & Defender at the same time to protect your system. You can have only one AV protection turned On at a time that will protect your computer.
