    I read here about the free virus detector AVAST and down-loaded it, I am
    running AVG6 at the moment can I run them both at the same time? I also
    would like to know, is AVAST any good? I don't have the money to buy a good
    commercial virus checker.

    Avasts' OK I've no problems with it. Also AVG as backup, this I have
    disabled. More than one AVP leads to problems IMO. Also have Mcafee VS also
    disabled and used occasionally;0)

    I've been running Avast for a couple of weeks getting rid of AVG for not
    stopping virus attacks and causing a mouse problem. I run two programs at
    the same time and haven't had any trouble. I run a version of Trend Micro in
    my utility suite and Avast stopped email viruses before it was recognized by
    TM so I think it's pretty good. The Avast animated icon in the system tray
    is annoying.

    I've tried Avast and ended up dumping it in favor of AVG, I like the Avast
    interface better but the darn thing would cause system problems. I run AVG
    along with Trend Micros Office Scan currently. As far as running both, yes
    you should be fine.
