Windows Defender v Avast in Windows 8 - Hmmm

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a thread where someone stated that if a third party AV was installed in W8 it automatically disabled Defender.
Imagine my surprise this morning when, on my PC with Avast, Defender popped up saying it had identified a problem (Hackfile or somesuch) and was cleaning it.
So, what is going on?

Win 8's defender is an anti virus and anti malware program. Had to use it as my favourite AV (Avast!) was having problems with Win8. Defender was ok as I ran it for a month or so. Actually Win 8 runs better with it than a third party AV.
Decided to install AVG in the end (couldn't be bothered to wait for Avast to fix the problems) and that runs well on Windows 8.
