Yes its is absolutely safe and its a very tight security setup.
Dinesh, not to be critical, but isn't it bad
have more than one real-time protection at one time?
I haven't heard of anybody that suggested more than one antivirus. They will interfere with each other. One virus will pop up. Antivirus A tries to block it. It quarantines it. Antivirus B notices that the virus is on the computer but it doesn't know that the virus is being quarantined. So it quarantines the definitions of antivirus A. Antivirus A, notices what it deems suspicious behavior from antivirus B. Antivirus attempts to quarantine antivirus B. In the meanwhile, a virus comes into the computer, because neither antivirus are doing anything besides to each other.
In conclusion, multiple real-time protections, make computer less secure (gives user a false sense of additional security
) and also makes computer tragically slow...
Well,there you have it, what might happen when you have two active antiviruses.
It reduces the security.
Now, you can have an active real-time protection and an inactive
antivirus, like a scanner, or online scanner, or removal tools.
