Are there software applications available (or even under development) to reduce conflicts amongst two different competing APPs? 

 

For example, some users opt to apply two different anti-malware APPs e.g, see link discussing difficulties stemming from applying two different anti-malware APPS.      

 

See discussion 'Anti Virus/Anti Malware Software Applies AI.'

Hi,

I'm not aware of any applications or even developments that would be likely to do this.

What methods may be applied to best synchronize/reconcile two competing anti-virus/anti malware products? Can such methods become incorporated, and hence translated into software APPs to minimize conflicts between two competing anti-virus/anti-malware products?

Generally speaking, it is counter productive to have more than one anti virus product running resident in memory at the same time.

 

Running more than one, resident in memory, at the same time would tend to reduce the protection available rather than enhance it.

 

As far as I'm aware there are no reports of any major developments, universally accepted, that would tend to negate the general advice as stated above.
