It is never a good ideal to have two live scanners going as they will produce false positive readings and potentially miss things all together.
We have always advised to have only one active scanner or real time av program.
There a couple of really good free ones we advise to use. They are Avast Home Edition or Avira. both are very good and use very little system resources which will not slow your system down.
