Your pretty good to go then. Just remember not to run more multiple realtime protections simultaneously, belonging to same category.
Like Avast+Another AV=Bad
Avast+spybot's teatimer or malwarebytes pro=Good.
Take a note that it, however, doesn't grant you the freedom to use more and more realtime protections (belonging to different category). It should be atmost 2, not more than that.
Happy & safe computing.

You can have another real time protection along with an antivirus or internet security. MBAM Pro Protection Module works well with an antivirus and it has a delayed startup avoiding confliction.

I use KIS 2011 and MBAM Pro together. Thing is, you haven't even said what you got on your computer that you want removing. You said a virus, but as far as we know, it could be anything for malware. Please add more info the full name of this malware.

EDIT: By the way, what made you think you got a virus if you haven't got an antivirus or anti-malware programs notifying you of one?

I had a blue screen of death so I thought something might be wrong, but I ran a full scan with Malwarebytes and nothing came up so I think it might have been from a driver or something it has not happened since.

What were you doing when you got the BSOD?

I just downloaded a program from download.com and tried to install it and it would not open the installer so I clicked it a bunch of times then the computer started to get slow and then BSOD. so I thought it might be a virus or because Iclicked it a bunch, but I never had a BSOD before so I'm not sure.

Test your anti-malware/anti-virus protection with EICAR
As many of you know(quite a few don't) what EICAR is, this is a open poll to see what programs pick it up and what programs fail the basic tests. I am conducting this poll because A-Squared failed to see this on a scan, but MSE picked it up before it could be downloaded. So after you take...
