Solved Can I run more then one Anti-Virus programs?

Post by uripadees on Sat Dec 12, 2009 2:22 am

Can I run more then one anti-virus programs? If so, what ones are compatable. I have heard that some programs like Windows Defender don''t work well with AGV. I have AVG free and want to know what other programs will work with it. Like will Ad-Aware or Avast work with AVG? Or Will one do? Cheers Mate

Hello,

Never run more than one antivirus at a time. It may cause conflicts and crash your system. Any anti-spyware will work well with an antivirus. So you can uswe Ad-Aware with AVG or Avast
