    Do I need Windows Defender?
    Are there any know conflicts between the two?

    There is no conflict between the ZA and the Windows Defender.

    Do you need it? Sort of maybe. Most of its shields or guards are not needed because the Zone Alarm does the same thing. Compare the shields or guards of both applications and see which ones are doubled and then disable the Windows shields for those ones. The Windows Defender could still be used as an "ondemand scanner" for an occasional antispy scan to back up your security setup.
