I currently use Malwarebytes and AVG as my Anti-Virus on my PC is there even a need for this and how do I go about disabling it?

If you have 3rd party antivirus software, you can disable it. Go to Services and scroll down to the bottom to find Windows Defender. Right click it and click on properties. Set the start up type to manual or disabled.
