    Have Window 8.1

    Currently running Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware programs

    Was thinking about just running Windows Defender as my only AntiVirus program - okay idea or bad idea?

    Windows defender is what I use. I have not had an infection yet, but then I don't go willy nilly around the web to questionable places either.

    well windows defender is ok but is not strong enough if you are the type that visits other sites then you might need a much stronger one. you can keep your malwarebytes and scan from time to time if you have to. one question is the super antispyware legi.?

    windows defender is good but it does not check for the same thing as malwarebytes and superantispyware. imo, you need at least one of them to run in addition to your windows defender or whatever antivirus you use.
