If you already have an anti virus, then you dont need Windows defender, in fact some AV's insist on it being disabled.

If you dont already run an Anti VIrus then download something like Avira for free, as it does a better job than Windows defender

you say you already have Microsoft security essentials, then thats is your Antivirus program and it's a pretty good one for free. If Microsoft security essentials is running then there's no need to run windows defender as Microsoft security essentials is better and does more than windows defender.
