    You can't. Windows Defender includes all MSE functionality so, in a way, you are already running both.

    Thanks for the reply. How do I find Windows Defender on Windows 8.1 and then ran a scan?

    You find it like you find any other app you want to run but you don't have it pinned on the start menu or the taskbar: While on the Metro Start screen start typing "Defender". if you are on the Desktop, press the Windows key and start typing "Defender" or "Windows Defender".

    This is also the procedure to search for any other program - press the Windows key and start typing the word(s) you want to search for.

    I don't use Windows Defender, so I am the wrong person to explain that, but you have a detailed explanation here: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html
