Click Windows Security in the taskbar, click on Virus & threat protection and check whether Kaspersky Security Cloud is correctly registered. It should say Kaspersky Security Cloud is turned on

If it does, then directly below Security Cloud you should only see Microsoft Defender Antivirus Options in blue text. If you see Current Threats, Virus & threat protection settings, Ransomware Protection etc., then Periodic Scanning has been enabled and that is why Defender is active and visible in Task Manager. 

To disable Defender completely, scroll down to Microsoft Defender Antivirus options and switch Periodic scanning to off.
