It is ok to have several "On Demand" AV programs, but not to have more than one actively scanning the system at a time.

It would be a bit like the Red Cross and St John Ambulance fighting over who was going to treat a patient.

Avast (like any other antivirus program) will automatically turn Windows Defender off to prevent any conflicts.
