In the thread titled "You Must Read This before posting a HighJackThis Log"

there was a note under step #2 which was:
NOTE: DO NOT install more than one antivirus program. They will conflict, and provide less protection, not more.

I was under the impression that Ewido scanned for trojans while AVG scanned for Viruses.

Right now, my college supplies me with a free subscription to Mcaffee anitvirus, and I also have Ewido installed right now, but i was wondering if in the future, if i could use both AVG and Ewido without them interfering with each other.

Thanks for clearing things up.

Hello and welcome to GeeksToGo! :tazz:

Ewido *is* designed to be able to run alongside a regular Anti-Virus product. That is one that is safe to allow to run no matter what other a/v you are using. Ewido is NOT a trojan scanner, however. It looks for many types of spyware, viruses, bad cookies, etc and so on.

It is correct you shouldn't run two a/v's. Such as...don't run the McAffee alongside the AVG. :)
