Some of us here have given up on using third-party antivirus software for our primary protection due to various issues, and just use MS Defender.

One reason is that some third-party software worms its way so deeply into Windows that it causes problems, and requires specialized uninstall utilities to actually get rid of it; so an ordinary Windows app uninstall may not fully remove it. I found this to be the case when I stopped using third-party AV (not Kaspersky, which I've never tried).

So true. I use MS Defender that comes with Windows 10. Have had issues with others in the past: Resource usage, popups, breaking things, etc.
