Can I have more than One Antivirus Program?



This is a question I see quite a bit… in fact I just saw this questoin while browsing the web. Generally it’s NOT a good idea to have more than one antivirus program. Given the low level system access that antivirus software needs to have it can interfere with correctly protecting the system from the viruses as it’s supposed to. It IS possible to have an antivirus program and other software that protects against spyware. You just need to be careful and check out the software you plan to use. I’m starting a list of good virus and spyware removal tools some of which are standalone antivirus or anti-spyware software.
