    HI!!!!
    i am afraid that you cant use both the antivirus in the system.
    Even if you install it somehow it will only lead to system crashes and hanging.
    so now that you have already purchased it make sure that you use it on two different systems or if the validity of the two is apart you can use one for the time and then use another.
    one antivirus and that too paid will be good enough to remove the viruses.

    And don't Install unused or Unneeded Application to protect from Hanging or spams..

    Is it good to run two antivirus at a time in Windows 7 ?


    No,it is not good to run two antivirus at a time in windows 7 because it is useless and affect the processing speed of RAM (Random Access Memory ).But in case of Windows 7 it is not possible to install two antivirus at a time.

    So,that it is conclude that not install in windows 7 but in Windows 8 these type of facility is available .

    If you want to install any antivirus in Windows 7 then Microsoft essential is good antivirus and it works properly.It is full version and there is no trial version of Microsoft essential and easily available on Internet.

    Friend, it is not good two have both the Anti Viruses installed on your System. You can have both, but you should have them installed.

    You should make either of them "Active and Running", but not both.

    If both the Anti Viruses are running, it leads to System Crashes and Freezing. Be Careful.

    no its not good to run two anti viruses. 2 antiviruses are not need at all and also it creates a possibility of crash. Microsoft security essentials is a good option to be used.

    No its not safe to use two antivirus at a time.

    I suggest you to use only one antivirus which is better and best .

    If you use more than one antivirus then your system will be very much slow and mostly when your trying to install the second anti virus then your system will alert you that already there is a antivirus, and even though if you install then you will be facing many problems.

    I suggest you to use AVAST antivirus as its performance is very good compared to other Antivirus .

    To download a freeware of Antivirus go here and download :-http://www.filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/

    So its highly problematic if you install two antivirus in your system at a time.

    Re: Is it good to run two ant viruses at a time in windows 7?

    Hello,
    Anti viruses main task is to protect and secure your computer from the outside threats like Malwares and viruses. For that an anti virus needs to scan all the files and data which is coming in your machine.
    The main disadvantage of antivirus is that it uses a lot memory(RAM) of your computer which often make a computer slow in processing.
    So i think installing and using 2 anti viruses in a same machine is not a good idea performance wise.
    Also in some cases one anti virus feels that the other antivirus is a threat and might delete it.

    Regards

    No sometimes it is not good to run two anti virus programs at a time in the windows 7 because Ram memory can be damaged and also the protection capacity of the software can be lost with the use of two anti virus softwares so you should only run 1 anti virus program in order to set and security for the system and also protection will be much better with the use of only one anti virus software.

    is it the good to run the two |antivirus| at the same time in Windows 7?

    No, it is not good to run the two |antivirus| at the same time in windows 7 because you are useless and affect the speed of process of the RAM ( memory of random access ).But in the case of Windows 7 the is not to possible to install two |antivirus| at the same time.

    Would that, that is to do not conclude thats installed in windows 7 but in Windows 8 these type of the facility is available.

    If it want install each |antivirus| in Windows 7 then fundamental need of Microsoft is |antivirus| good and it works properly.It is complete version and exist any version of trial of the fundamental need of Microsoft and easily available on Internet.
    Opposed to the main virus task is to protect ands to secure your computer of the exterior threats as Malwares and virus. In order that an opposed to the virus need to examine all files and data that are coming in your machine.


    The main disadvantage of the |antivirus| is that it uses a lot of memory (RAM) of your computer that it does often a slow computer when prosecuting.
    So I think install and use 2 opposed to virus in a same machine is not a way of execution of good idea.
    Also in some cases an opposed to the virus it seat that the other |antivirus| are a threat and can erase it.

    If Windows contain only one Anti-virus installed, then it would work perfectly.
    Don't install two anti-virus, they will affect each other. Because these antivirus have many features like Firewall, Online Scanner, Link Scanner, etc.
    After installing both of them, it will create problem for the Windows to manage them.
    Also, if your RAM is too low, your computer may hang also.
    Install only one antivirus and update it regularly.

    HI,
    I not suggest you to install 2 antivirus in your system because they will make your system very heavy and make it hang frequently and the booting time will also increase ..
    And they can make you system corrupted also...So, it is always said by the antivirus manufacturer to not use to antivirus of different companies in the same system..
    If you want to protect you can do it with one antivirus also , but always keep your antivirus upto date..it will protect your system from latest thread..
    And i will suggest you to install the AVG antivirus because it is the better from Avast...


    Hope you have got your answer...

    Hi Friend ,

    It is not recommended to install two antivirus in a same system .

    If you install two antivirus

    - Your computer may not boot properly
    - Degrade your system performance
    - may be same file will be accessed by both the softwares at same time which may corrupt the file

    So , Install only one antivirus it is sufficient to save your system from malware if you update it time to time

    THANKS!!

    It is never suggested nor applied under proper guidence, to install , use or suggest two Antivirus Softwares under one Operating System.

    Never try that as a quality Antivirus can solve all the problems which relate to cyber malpractices, including tracking, scanning or killing virus, spyware, malware,worms,trojans and anything that can cause harm to the computer.

    Infact installing two Antivirus can least do is cross one anothers path to let anything happen to the system insted of protecting.

    Re: Is it good to run two ant viruses at a time in windows 7?

    It's not good to run two antivirus in one system, because if deteting and deleting of viruses are possible only by one antivirus then why should we use two antiviruses at a time. So i will suggest you to run only one antivirus on a system. You can choose the best antivirus among many antivirus and can run on your system. Regular updation of antivirus is very necessary so try to update regularly for the best performance of your antivirus.

    Running two antivirus on a system can result to system crash, hanging, etc.

    Its not good for your computer to have to antiviruses in your system.because it will lead to system performance degradation. you will in some days your system hangs a lot. this is just because of the two antiviruses and you can't even use them at same time. so, i suggest you to uninstall one of the antivirus.

    hiii...
    Its dammn not good to use two antivirus at a same time.
    It will only lead your computer to crash unnecessarily.
    Try to use one and better antivirus instead of some trial version.
    try Avast antivirus which is a bit costly but really effective. and is worth to but for about Rs. 1000 .

    Re: Is it good to run two ant viruses at a time in windows 7?


    Dear guest,

    Both antivirus that you have mentioned are wonderful. However I must make it a point and make you aware that installing both antiviruses can be done. But the result will be that the system will get hanged or will crash often. This is due to two antiviruses treating each other as malware.
    This is a problem and however not at all needed. When you have an antivirus with you it will do all your tasks.

    However you can install one antivirus now and if the license begins after installation you can install the other after the license of the first one expires or even you can install the two antiviruses in two seperate systems. Now this will solve your problem and even if you don't have two systems then you can always sell it to any of your friends..

    Thank you..

    Re: Is it good to run two ant viruses at a time in windows 7?

    Hi friend,

    Its just superstition that installing two anti virus would remove all the viruses in your computer.

    Installing one anti virus that is genuine and works properly is enough.

    First look for the anti virus which is popular and works efficiently.

    Installing two anti virus would not solve your problem of getting rid of viruses.

    Installing two anti virus is not at all recommended.

    So go for the genuine and efficient one.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you...

    Hello,


    No, it is advisable not install two anti-virus softwares at a time in windows 7. If you do install your windows 7 may not boot properly and there will be many problems later. AVG and Avast both are good anti-viruses but you should install one at time to get the best possible service from it. The protection of your PC from viruses depend on your usage and the quality of anti-virus software. One good anti-virus if more than sufficient enough to tackle any virus threats. So, don't worry.

    Bye,

    Re: Is it good to run two ant viruses at a time in windows 7?

    As per my advice it is not good to run two anti virus in a computer simultaneously.

    Because if you install two anti viruses then they will consume more memory and CPU power so that your other processes will get lesser memory and CPU power.

    Also there will be probelm of system hanging if you install two anti viruses.

    Now a days a single anti virus is sufficient to tackle all the viruses .

    Also your money will not be wasted fro purchasing the anti virus.

    So it is better that keep one anti virus which is best in market instead of two anti viruses.

    Thank you...

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say........................

    1.No it is not good to run two antivirus software's in Windows 7 system at a time.

    2.You can run but it will damage your system.

    3.The one antivirus do not allow other to work.

    4.Like they will corrupt all your system files.

    5.And they will allow the virus to affect your system.

    6.So according it is dangerous to run both paid and installed antivirus.

    Have a nice day...................................

    dear friend,

    1)it is not a good to install the antivirus in the laptop because of the following reasons
    2)they will consume lot of your ram memory hence makes your system slow
    3)as the antivirus is the start up program if you install the antivirus apps then it will make your system to boot slow
    4)i think you cannot install the two antivirus apps because if you install one antivirus in your system then it will check for the other antivirus in the system and is any present then it will remove it
    5)so it is better if you use the one anti virus apps in the above two apps avg works for fine
    6)i don't know why you bought that antivirus the best antivirus is norton so buy it

    happy to assist you..........................

    Hi friend,

    First of all more than one antivirus does not supports, it hangs when you starts the system. Because the system takes so many load and it hangs the whole system.

    In case if the system supports more than one antivirus the system will get overloaded then after the result would be the system is going so loose or slow.

    So always a single antivirus software is better for the system. The best antiviruses are like Quick Heal, Avast, E scan, Norton security etc..

    • It is not Good to run two antivirus software at a time
    • If you run both at a time there may be clash between the two to get the resources to get check
    • So It will damage your system files
    • You can use the two antivirus software if they are not conflict each other
    • Windows 7 comes with the built in Windows fire wall and Microsoft security Essentials
    • It is recommended that use only one Efficient anti virus software on your system

    Dear Friend,
    It is not advised to have more than one antivirus working on a laptop or system as they may conflict with one another. The important thing is to make sure you do not run both applications simultaneously. Antivirus programs do not usually play well together, and running two at the same time will often lead to one singling out the other as a virus, or in some cases, even cause file corruption. Plus running two apps can really eat up system resources.
