Is it OK to have MORE THAN ONE AV PROGRAM installed?

670 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  lexmarks567
Running Win98SE I was having problems with my email, which I found to be attributable to Norton AV. My cable provider gave me their AV program (Computer Associates' EZ-virus) which I'd like to try. I know it's dangerous to have more than 1 AV program running, but if I keep Norton disabled, would it be OK to then install and have EZ-virus running in the background? Normally, I'd just uninstall NAV, but I went nuts a couple of years ago trying to uninstall Symantec software, and will try to avoid that like the plague.

it is not a good idea to run multiple AV programs. Norton is garbage anyway, you're better off with AVG free......
