Are two antivirus programs better than one?
Posted by James Robshaw on 01 July 2006 02:04 PM

No. It is best to have one good Anti-Virus program. Antivirus programs access the files they scan by opening them and scanning them. If another antivirus program is also trying to open a file at the same time, it has to wait for the file to become free. This might cause problems from programs not starting correctly to system crashes and tilts.
