  • Hi,

    It is not recommended. Antivirus softwares use your computer's .dll files and if you install 2 or more antivirus it might happen system crash (Highly chance). Also, If you have two (or more) they will conflict with each other and your computer may not even finish booting when restarted.

    Use Microsoft Security Essentials ... it's a good AV.
