Should I Run 2 Antivirus Solutions ?

The answer is … No 

  • 2 will interfere with Windows 
  • 2 will cause your computer to slow down
  • 2 will not keep you protected as 1 may negate the other one 
  • 2 may cause false results to be displayed – 1 may say that the other is an infection 

So the answer is 1 and realise that it is your actions that will cause you to be infected and the antivirus solution will in most cases NOT save you.

So amongst other things:

  • Keep your operating system up to date 
  • Keep your software up to date
  • Stop clicking and opening emails that you know will 

Realise that running as an administrator will override the antivirus causing infections to be installed
