This is not the case with MSE... It will run just fine along with Avast...

Their DNS servers block known sites that are known to inject malware/viruses... however you can obtain the same results by using an up to date hosts file from MVPS.org

that is correct.
you should not use more than 1 antivirus-programs with realtime-protection.

but, there are a few exceptions to that "rule".....

Avast was designed to be able to run together with MSE.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware (EAM) works well together with most other antivirus-programs,
but you might have to change the settings for the file guard to "Scan on Execution".

no antivirus-program can detect everything, so if you have a good combination that really works,
then you have improved your security.

Oh, so a bit above the general DNS server. This is my DNS settings:

DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 127.0.0.1
87.194.255.155

Oh, I already have the hosts file from there. I modded it, adding my own block entries and then a bunch of positive entries too. I attached my positive entries in a txt~

Another aspect to choosing DNS servers is speed the freeware GRC DNS Speed Benchmark Utility from the highly regarded Gibson Research Corporation will not only give you a graph of the fastest DNS available to you, but also provide an extremely detailed evaluation report on a multitude of security aspects regarding each of those DNS Servers...

If I go with Avast free + MSE. Will it interfere with my online gaming? Because I recently tried comodo antivirus and it interferes with my online gaming.

As far as I know Avast and MSE each offer excellent protection in their own right is there a reason that you need both?

Did this happen even in Comodo Game Mode? There are some Comodo Forum Members who are avid gamers and they may be able to show how to prevent this from happening.
