More than one anti-virus, malware program on computer okay?
by flingwing - 2/12/09 3:01 AM
I have AVG (free) anti-virus, SuperAntiSpyware (free), Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (free), and two worm detection programs also downloaded (all but AVG suggested by this forum).
On my computer, the AVG is always active but the other programs must be manually launched. I don't think they are working silently in the background.
Someone told me that to have more than one anti-virus program was counter-productive. He said you may end up with a virus message from one program but the other program might prevent you from cleaning it up.
Is this true, or are there any considerations about having more than one anti-virus type program on your computer? Thanks.
