I have one question... i was going to get Trend Micro and I already have Norton... If I ran them at the same time would it cause my computer to freeze or crash? Two of my friends said it might but I want to find out the real truth.

Thanks Scottie

It is not recommended to run 2 AV's

it is almost 100% guaranteed to cause lockups & freezes and if it doesn't then it is very possible that any virus will get on as both will try to get it and each will prevent the other one killing it
