A quick question - is is ok to have more than 2 Anti Virus programmes running at the same time? I currently have AVG and Zone Alarm but I'm interested in Comodo as a possible replacement for Zone Alarm when my subscription runs out. Thought I'd try it first and run it along side the two I have.

Quick answer= No, and I wouldn't advise running 2 AV progs at the same time either. 1 good one is enough. I would stick with AVG.

Also, just for the future, that goes for almost all protection software... Never have more than one antivirus, spyware, or firewall program running at the same time. They tend to conflict with each other and weaken your defenses. Just a note :whistling:
