can i install two anti virus in one pc for testing av ?

hi i have already installed kaspersky internet security latest version but my Friend gave me eset smart security so i want to check it in my pc without removing kaspersky. because i may not have internet connection all the time and i have updated kaspersky today after the long time waiting. now please read me what i want to do

#i will install eset and disable the kaspesky or i will not run kaspersky
#will resister eset and chek its feature without opening or making active the kis
# after comparing the features and performance i will unistall one of the antivirus and keep another one there...

now my question is ...does it harm pc or effects the performance of kaspesky even after eset is uninstalled?
note that i will not run any scan of both antivirus at the same time.....more over i will not perform from....

i googled but every one say about conflicting of antivirus but i repeat i will not run both scan at one,,,
finally after the removal of one anti virus ..remaining one will be perfect as earlier?
help me

is it necessary that we have to install any operating system first to install other applications? or we can install application without installing operating system?

You need to install the OS first like you would normally(BTW I would suggest setting the ram half of your pc ram on the Virtual Machine so it runs faster)

I think a better idea is to scan using bootable CDs and/or usb sticks. The USB sticks carry the advantage of being able to have definitions that are up to date when you run them instead of when they're created, like a CD.
