Dear All
Should there be a problem if i have more than one anti-virus software?

Thanks woodchip for your

Yes - it is very inadvisable to run with more than one - and totally unnecessary - just use a reliable one in the first place. click here

possibly but why more than one?

You would be pointlessly introducing a scenario for potential conflicts - one AV is enough.

f-secure uses three scanning engines and is almost 100% watertight(unlike norton),only kaspersky labs is as effective

I wouldnt run two real-time scanners but I have never found a problem with one scanner enabled and the other disabled. You then use the later disabled virus scanner for On-demand scans only.

Dear all
Thanks for your reply to the above.I have AVG installed however,there was an article in the Daily Mail...12/02/04 about a fault in Microsoft Windows(i have 98 and xp) which could be exploited by hackers.The advice given was to log on to and update........
On that website,there is anti-virus software provided by Computer Associates.
So i was wondering,whether it was advisable?
But then you are the experts,so i will stick to AVG.
