Norton and defender question

Will it affect my Norton if I turn on the option for Windows Defender to periodically scan for threats? Or should I just leave it off as so. I just know sometimes overlapping Av’s can cause issues, as well as maybe use too much resources. But thanks in advance.



As far as I know, you can’t. Defender is automatically disabled if another AV is installed.


You should add each other to their own respective exclusions as so windows defender doesnt scan the quarantine of norton.
