    Both of those have good reputations, though both will tend to use more system resources than Windows Defender does. The installers for both of those will handle the issues related with disabling Defender as part of the install process, so it's really a case of choose the one that has the best price for the features included.

     

    Note that there are two different Windows Defender products. With older OSes, Defender was only an anti-spyware package, not an Anti-Virus. With the current OS, Windows Defender has the functionality of Microsoft Security Essentials rolled in, so acts against both spyware and malware. All my machines are runnign Windows 10, and I use Windows Defender on them without adding a third party package.
