    The "Windows Defender" app in Windows 7 is not an antivirus app like the "Windows Defender" app in Windows 10 is, so it can be disabled.

    The "Windows Defender" antivirus app in Windows 10 is actually called Windows Security.

    In Windows 7 Windows Defender is a lame anti-spyware utility. It does no harm, while doing little good.
