AV software mostly interferes with each other when running 2 or more at once, but in the case of previously mentioned on-demand scanners, they wouldn't interfere with your AV. In addition to that, you can make an exception for the on-demand scanners' .exes or exclude the entire folders from your resident AV scans.
I've had no problems with having Malwarebytes & SuperAntiSpyware installed and running in addition to my resident antivirus. But it can be a (rare) case of some AV/AM software playing nice with each other, while others aren't compatible at all. With that said, Malwarebytes & SuperAntiSpyware are proven to not interfere with most AV & security suites out there, including Norton.
