Windows 7: AVG and SuperAntiSpyware

AVG and SuperAntiSpyware

Hi,

I have AVG free anti-virus.
I also have SuperAntiSpayware wich I use for on-demand scanning
with real-time protection disabled.
Is it a problem to allow Super to have real-time protection....?
Someone suggested not to have more than one anti-virus.
Is Super's real-time protection an anti-virus....?

I have been trying to understand the difference for a long time.

Thanks,
BBDS

True.

No.

A lot of people here run MSE & Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for on demand scans.

One of the laptops here has AVG Anti Virus Pro plus SuperAntiSpyware Pro with real time enabled.
Has been this way for years & all is well.
Would recommend you enable it asap.
