Avira recently put out a new version and when installing it it tells me
I should disable Defender because Avira does what Defender does too and
it may cause conflicts. I disabled Defender but I am using free Avira so
am thinking maybe free Avira doesn't overlap with Defender and I should
have both enabled. What do you think?

Re-enable it and see what transpires.

It's not a matter of if they coexist ok together or not, I don't want
Defender enabled if the new Avira makes it redundant. Defender has never
found squat anyway so don't think I need it if I have Avira and
Malwarebytes.

Well if you have Malwarebytes' anti malware, yes, it is redundant.

It still surpasses Windows Defender.
That is if you practice Safe Hex and run an periodic, and signature updated, "On Demnand"
scan.

Yep, I do. I have noscript installed into Firefox too so that helps a
lot because I have read that web site drive by infections are becoming
more and more common.
