FSFilter Anti-Virus - Windows Defender does real-time checking of new files.
If I remove Windows Defender is it safe to remove it? I removed all filters without having any apparent consequences but I don't know what might be going on behind the scenes.

FSFilter Activity Monitor - File Explorer will update the folder view based on detected activity.
Maybe this is because my Desktop doesn't always update the files shown when I download a file in the browser and save it to the Desktop, I removed that :p

Basically it's required for anything to snoop filesystem traffic. Much like a network analyzer does.
