If Avg And Norton Are Both Installed?

Postby Chuchip » Sun Oct 08, 2017 9:13 am

Currently i am using two anti virus softwares (norton and avg) and when scanning with Norton it said my computer is protected etc but when scanning with AVG it says i may have a 'potienally dangerous rootkit or something like that' however i have been told by others it is not a rootkit and is infact AVG picking up norton and thinking it is a trojan is this true? I have been told AVG regonises norton as a trojan as it acts like one?

My computer is running fine and hasnt been slowed down or anything with the last few days.

You can only run one anti-virus program. If you run two, you may get false positives and run into conflicts.

Having two programs managing your spyware/virus protection is not a good idea.

They interfere with each other and compromise your system's protection.

It's like someone wearing two condoms during sex. It's actually worse because they wear away at each other and break.

If you had to pick between the two, AVG is the best. Keep in mind, both are good.

I personally use Avast.

Your next move is to uninstall one of these. They are messing with each other. This is something you should NEVER DO.

Never run two AV programs.
You see why.
