    At every Windows update there is an "important" update for Windows Defender. I always ignore it, but am wondering what use is it since I have KISS?
    Should I remove it or can I?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    I guess it doesn't conflict with AV, otherwise it would probably get disabled during KIS installation. Some AVs disable it when they are installed. It looks like KIS doesn't do it.

    I would disable it. It will slow your machine with no benefit.
