We disable Windows Defender via group policy. A lot of IT administrators do. It's not that it's a bad product, it's that there are alternatives in the marketplace that provide a great many more features, like central management and distribution of policies, which can universally whitelist folders on all domain controlled workstations.
For the non-domain systems in a small office with a limited budget, Defender is a great solution as an endpoint malware product. However, these are the issues they will encounter, not just with LC apps but with others.
