In addition, when you uninstall say AVG or whatever other antivirus you have , Windows Defender will turn itself back on again automatically.

Windows Defender stops running if another antivirus program is installed. You aren’t supposed to have two antivirus programs running at the same time so Windows Defender shuts down.
For some reason windows security notified me a couple of days ago that it was turned off on my windows 10 machine. I think I eventually got it turned back on but in the meantime I found out that AVG was installed and apparently running. I have no idea how AVG got installed, must've been part of some bloatwear that got installed when I installed something else even though I have unchecky installed and that's supposed to stop extra things like that from installing, but unless the message I got was wrong apparently certain things can shut down windows security.
