Webroot and Windows Defender
I have read that Webroot can run along side Windows Defender. My question is what's the point of having defender running when we have Webroot SecureAnywhere running? If your recommendation is to disable Windows Defender could someone give me the steps to do so in Windows 10 and Server 2016?

With Defender running in 'classic AV' mode (periodically), and Webroot doing it's live good/bad/monitoring thing, you're combining two approaches, at different times.
