Hard to know, some conflict somewhere, I don't use Defender, switched from Avast to Microsoft Security Essentials.
The following chart explains how Windows Defender compares with other antispyware and antivirus technologies that Microsoft offers.

You cannot use Windows defender if you are currently using Microsoft Security Essentials in your pc.
MSE has an inbuilt Windows Defender in it so MSE would work like a Windows Defender when found some spyware.
So,its better to use MSE, because it protects from virues as well as spyware.
