Generally only one piece of anti-virus software is recommended per PC, because apparently running more than one program at a go will cause conflicts, similar to the whole 'don't run two software firewalls together' thingy. :tazz:

cassykins is right. having 2 antivirus programs can cause conflicts. Sp2 has is own firewall btw (if you haven't noticed already).

Would appreciate any comments and thoughts.


personally i think you are over-protective. Any of those antivirus are good as long as it has the current DAT files.
