    From what I know.. You can not turn them on all at once. But you can follow those steps to turn them on individually.

    Windows Firewall: Control panel - System & Security - Windows Firewall - On the left hand side you will see "Turn off/on windows firewall"
    Malwarebytes - Go to your task bar and navigate to the hidden icons. Right click on the icon and it will give you option to turn on real time protection module.

    Windows Defender- Go to this website: Turn Off/On Windows Defender

    My simple answer is that yes, you can, provided Kaspersky is only the antivirus without the firewall.

    EDIT: To help people with such decisions, the rule is that you can only have one antivirus and one firewall. But you can normally add several anti-spyware tools. Since Windows Defender and Malwarebytes are both anti-spyware, their coexistence shouldn’t present a problem. But this does not apply to Microsoft Security Essentials, which is antivirus and could not coexist with Kaspersky.

    NEVER run multiple anti-viri programs all at once. You're ASKING for system problems not to mention they will slow your system to a crawl.

    One is enough. I have run MS security essentials for several years now with NO issues whatsoever.
