This question is also answered in our FAQ.
AVG 2012 is compatible with some other security software products, specifically Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast Free, Avira Free, Norton and McAfee, to provide you with protection. However, compatibility also depends on the technologies employed by the other security software present on your computer. This means that if your computer has multiple compatible security software products installed, you may notice a slowdown of your computer speed and abnormal behaviors in applications. In some extreme cases, using multiple security products may cause data loss or system freezes.
When installing AVG on your computer, it is possible to continue without uninstalling the compatible software. However, we highly recommend uninstalling all conflicting applications before continuing with the installation of AVG in order to avoid any unintended errors that may occur as a result.
From my point of view, I would use (and recommend) only one anti-virus protection on my computer in one time.
