is it good for your p.c to have more then one anti-virus download

No its computer suicide.

More than one anti virus will conflict with the others and will stop any of them from working properly. If you have more than one then choose the one you like and get rid of the others

which do u think is the best one out there that is free which have you got

AVG free.

Theres also AVAST, nothing wrong with AVAST its just I tried AVG first, liked it and stuck with it.

If you have more than one anti virus on your computer now stop using your PC, pick one and get rid of the others, fully update it and do a full scan as there could be all sorts of things wrong and you don't know it.

One antivirus program.
One firewall.
As many antispyware as you like. Two is recommended but you can have more. Don't see the point myself two is fine.

AVG free has kept me virus free for nearly 3 years now, it also doesn't use a lot of resources which means it doesn't slow your PC down as much as some others, very useful if its an older PC.

You can try both if you like. Download them both but only install one of them at a time, try AVAST see if you like it, then delete it and install AVG and see what you prefer but do not install both and have them running at the same time.

One and only antivirus program can run at the same time.

oh and ive gt ccleaner

  Totally-braindead 23:55 28 May 2007

You need to get rid of either AVG or windows one care. I think the one care thing is paid for isn't it, if so and you haven't paid for it yet then delete it and use AVG or if you really like live care, pay the fee and delete AVG free.
The other programs are fine and can be left.
