Oops! I just came home, turned on my laptop and did not see the NIS 2011 icon in sys tray. So I tried to open NIS and got an error, uistub.exe file corrupted, please run chkdsk. Next step, ran the Norton Removal Tool and restarted the PC. Installed MSE. All is good now.

Running more than one AV at a time might cause conflicts and BSODs. Keep MSE+MBAM

Running two AV's is not good,as Yowan said.
Not all antivirus programs works together.Deffinitions from one av,the other one can thread them as virus.

But i read somewhere i think in this very forum that MSE and Avast are compatible with each other and both run fine on my laptop.Even on avast website its advertised that latest version of avast is fully compatible with MSE.

As StarkeR has stated; I agree. It also uses up a lot of systems resources when you run 2 at the same time.
