Sure, my favorite is Microsoft Security Essentials.

MSE is very good for laptops, because it doesn't use much resources.

There is no need to pay for anti-virus products these days.

Another good one is Avast.

IMO, no. I will not recommend that move. Using 2 AVs will create conflicts between each other and slow down your system performance.

You can always use this combo below. FYI, I'm using this combo ATM and never had any problems so far. Well, this is just my recommendation.

MSE + Spybot + SuperAntiSpyware + Malwarebytes

And a little bit of common sense.

Hope this helps.

Why no? I had those 2 AV's running on my system and never had any problems + along with other programs in my signature. Never had any Slow downs whatsoever,

just took awhile to download updates at times being on dial-up.. it's just for extra security.. a lot of people on this forum use Avast + MSE and know it wont conflict making it a good combo.

It is not recommended by most forums. Try googling for answers. As i said, this is just my opinion. If you feel that having 2 AVs can give you better protection and will benefit you, then do so.

ChroNiC187: You may want to reread these threads, there's no experienced users here recommending "Dueling AV Apps". What you do is certainly up to you, but let's not stir people to bad policy...

heh those 2 AV's are fine (not trying to argue btw) but yeah anyway i coulda sworn the thread had a different Name for it.. but yeah if you want a 2 av like that id use it on a desktop PC.. not laptop imo, i would advise MSE or Avast on a laptop just one.

my bad =)..i believe it had a dif title thread or im losing it anyway read my previous comment.

Getting a little annoyed to these threads though...

don't think they even read:

http://www.sevenforums.com/system-se...nti-virus.html

Top AV's users recommend are AVG,Avast,Avira,MSE etc (Freebies)

Take a pick burnhell69

I'd choose MSE for a lappy.

Cheers
