Welcome. WD should work fine with KFA 2019.

When you install Kaspersky, Windows defender is disabled.
So there are no conflicts with another antivirus, since only one can be activated by default.

Hi, as well as above posts by Berny and Caos.
You can go to Security settings open "virus & threat protection" to make sure if Kaspersky "protection" is ON.

Then at bottom of "security settings" list make sure Windows Defender is turned OFF,

In addition to the useful posts above:
with Kaspersky Free installed, the Firewall protection will be active that of Windows Defender, since in the Free version of Kaspersky (KFA) it's not included.
