Because they are both antiviruses, use ONE of those tools to completely remove ONE of those programs. You can not have 2 antivirus softwares installed (even if one is disabled). They will conflict, and cause... slowdowns.

Just a reminder. Having two anti virus installed is a no no even if one is disabled. One anti virus installed at one time on one computer. The active anti virus will see the disabled anti virus and have a little argument. This could cause many problems.

Although it's been a few weeks since I lasted posted, I have been playing the game on my MacBook which is giving me a mediocre performance during the game but does luckily the game does not freeze up on my Mac.

However, I just had a thought and am going to throw it out to see whether it's a good or bad idea. I have a Windows XP and 7 license for virtual environments. Would it be bad good or bad idea to try installing the games on an OS in a virtual environment using VirtualBox ad trying to play that way or would that be even harder on the computer and its hardware? Suggestions?

You would get a mediocre performance when playing DirectX games in a virtual environment since the virtual environment is not really designed for serious gaming.

IMO nothing happens to a laptop except reducing the life of the battery if it's running on battery mode and yes the laptops get heated when gaming so buy a notepad cooler.

I have a cooling pad that I use and I make sure that it's on full speed when gaming. Just thought I'd ask about the virtual environment and gaming.
