This is a very good idea as some anti virus programs are attacked and need a third party to program uninstall them. As to the use of Defender or any Microsoft anti virus, I would disable them and use Avast. I base my suggestion on the lab results of several reputable testing sites of the efficiency of these packages and Microsoft has a poor rating at the moment so don't use it.

I disagree with Bandid, often uninstalling AV software can be problematic, Eset & F-Secure to name just two provide uninstallers that run in safe mode for this very reason - Any program that makes the task easier has to be a good thing - I suppose you can do it the hard way though if you prefer?
@jcollake the problem is that common sense in using PC's works very well but in my experience its anything but common in some people I deal with :-)
